Bob Brammer, a spokesman for Iowa’s Attorney General, says the proposed settlement doesn’t provide enough compensation.Brammer says if the settlement isn’t thrown out, Iowans and others could lose their chance to get proper compensation from the company.Brammer says Publishers Clearing House is trying to portray the settlement as a good thing, but the 21 state Attorneys General disagree.Brammer says a Federal District Court is holding a formal hearing on the request to throw out the settlement. He says a decision could come early next year.
