This is the 50th e-newsletter (Vol. 5, No. 10) from the Claimants' Advisory Committee (CAC) in the Dow Corning bankruptcy Settlement Plan.  You were sent a copy of the newsletter because our records show that you requested to be on the mailing list.  If you wish to unsubscribe, click here or to reply to this newsletter, send an email to: info@tortcomm.orgPlease do not hit "Reply" to this email address.  Please use the email address:


Requests for copies of claim forms or inquiries about the status of a claim should be directed to the SettlementFacility at or 866-874-6099.  The Claimants' Advisory Committee does not have access to individual claimant files to answer these kinds of questions.






Because of damage to the Houston-metro area caused by Hurricane Ike this past weekend, the Settlement Facility offices for the Dow Corning Settlement Plan will remain closed this week.  To the best of our information, all staff employees at the Settlement Facility offices are safe, and we are very thankful for that.  Power remains out throughout the Houston metro area including in the building that houses the Settlement Facility offices, and city and interstate roads are flooded and filled with debris.


Claimant files at the Settlement Facility offices are secure.  All files are electronically scanned, and a back-up tape was updated as of noon on Thursday, September 10, 2008.  The back-up tapes are maintained off-site, outside of Houston, and are secure.  In addition, the file room that houses the claimant files was secured with a special cover by staff before the office closed last week.


Please do not call or send any emails to the Settlement Facility this week.  Even though an email may appear to go through, the Settlement Facility asks that you wait until the offices are functioning and then resend any email that was sent after noon on Thursday, September 10th


If you have legal counsel in the Houston metro area, you may consider waiting a week before trying to contact them.


We will let you know as soon as the Settlement Facility offices re-open.  Please continue to keep all of the Houston metro area in your thoughts.
