When the personally identifiable information of over 15 MILLION individuals is exposed to an unauthorized user, there is sure to be some blow back. For instance, it appears the Defendants in the case known as the Experience Data Breach Litigation will be experiencing blow back in the form of a massive $22,000,000 class action settlement. The case was filed over allegations that the Defendants failed to protect consumers’ personally identifiable information during a September 2015 data breach. However, it should be pointed out that the Defendants deny these allegations. Nonetheless, the case appears to be wrapping up and Class Members can now file using the postcard they received or online at the settlement page.
