What is Cy Pres?  

When a class action lawsuit prevails, the defendant entity is ordered to pay restitution or other punitive financial damages to the class.  The courts require that every effort is made to award to class members.  Where it is not possible to directly distribute all monies to class members, or when there are residual funds after all payouts have been made, a cy pres distribution may be made.
