A U.S. District Court judge ruled this week that an accounting firm can halt what so far have been unsuccessful efforts to contact 16 descendants of Armenian Genocide victims who are due payouts from an insurance fund.

Judge Christina Snyder said the numerous attempts by Holthouse, Carlin, and Van Trigt to reach out to the final batch of 159 claimants had been sufficient.

There is less than $500,000 left in the settlement account, according to the latest status report filed in court.

Snyder also ruled that the attorneys working on the case – Mark Geragos, Brian Kabateck and Roman Silberfeld – can spend up to $15,000 to continue trying to contact the non-responsive claimants.
