    It would be great if this provides some relief for those of us on pensions, who saw Nortel as a blue chip sure thing and, in my case, invested for the first time in my life, only to see the bubble burst and our life savings go down the drain.

    that’s probably the saddest part of the entire nortel saga – seeing people put so much faith and money in nortel only to see it disappear. it was troubling to hear someone at the AGM talk about how he bought 40K shares at $80 each. his $3.2 million investment is now worth $100K.

    I purchased a large amount of Nortel stock during 1999 and the scandal. I sent my forms along with the purchase transactions. I haven’t received any notice or money yet. I like to know if anyone has received their shares yet from the lawsuit. Who else can I contact? Any help is welcomed please.

    Thank you.

    We lost all of our retirement savings on Nortel. We had carefully planned our retirement but we moved overseas and had not got ourselves set up with a computer so were not able to keep a check on the stock.
    I would have thought our investment broker would have let us know what was happening but it seems they get the commission for the sale and then forget about you.
    Does anyone know approx. how much will be paid out for each share. We bought around 2000 in 2000/01?
