A “direct” purchase means that you bought one or more of the Korean Noodles from one or more of the Defendants.
To be valid, your direct purchase(s) must have been made during the Direct Purchaser Class Period of April 1, 2003 through January 31, 2010, and the Korean Noodles must have been purchased in the United States and its territories.
If you bought Korean Noodles from a company other than one of the Defendants, it is not a direct purchase for purposes of this lawsuit. You are not required to have purchased exclusively from one or more of the Defendants in order to be considered a direct purchaser for purposes of this lawsuit as long as you purchased Korean Noodles from any Defendant during the Class Period.
