Subject: Hyatt v. Shalala


On December 19, 1985, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued Interim Circular No. 163 (Revised), subsequently incorporated into HALLEX as Temporary Instruction (TI) 5-404, to implement relief to a class of individuals that later became known as the Hyatt I class. On August 9, 1988, OHA issued Supplement A to I.C. 163, also incorporated into HALLEX as TI 5-404, to implement relief to the Hyatt II class.

On March 21, 1994, the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina approved a joint Stipulation and Order of Settlement that describes the relief to be provided to the Hyatt III class.
