A group of former residents from two apartment complexes will receive millions of dollars in a class-action lawsuit over bed bugs.

According to the Des Moines Register, a Polk County judge approved a $2.45-million settlement Wednesday.

In 2010, 225 former and current residents of the Elsie Mason Manor and Lingutti Tower sued the owners and managers claiming the defendants knew about a bed bug infestation but failed to warn tenants or properly treat it.

The former residents will get between $200 to $11,000.
