Consumer Privacy

In this modern internet world, it is not uncommon for consumers to provide companies with their personal identifying information.  Unfortunately, within the last few years, numerous businesses have disclosed this sensitive consumer data through unauthorized, unsecured publication on the Internet or, through security breaches by internet hackers.  Consumers suffer injury in these instances of unauthorized disclosure because they are susceptible to identity theft. 

While companies typically provide disclaimers requesting authorization for the use of personal data, in some instances these authorization requests are misleading, confusing, or even entirely absent.  These invasions of privacy can affect millions of consumers.  Our consumer class action lawyers have successfully litigated data breach claims and helped protect consumers’ and employees’ private data in cases throughout the United States.

Court Recognition

“And without question, the Court is of the opinion that the value of benefit that’s been conferred to the class is extremely sizable and that this Court is certainly aware that the skill and efficiency of plaintiff’s counsel is what attributed to this settlement, and they are learned securities counsel. The Court is mindful of that, and as a result they were able to sort of weed their way through the complex issues in this case, and also to bring this about — bring about a settlement rather in short order as these matters go. So the Court certainly attributes that to counsel’s skill and efficiency, as well as the ability to work with the adversaries in this matter.”

–Hon. Susan D. Wigention, U.S. District Judge, District of New Jersey

“Class Counsel has conducted the litigation and achieved the Settlement in good faith and with skill, perseverance and diligent advocacy”

— Hon. Donovan W. Frank, U.S. District Judge, District of Minnesota

“The court finds that the Settlement Fund… created by Class Counsel is an exceptional result… The settlement is significantly above the average securities class action settlement when measured as a percentage of losses recovered… The court finds that Class Counsel, particularly Co-Lead Counsel, exerted tremendous effort on behalf of the class in the prosecution of this action… The Court finds that Class Counsel skillfully prosecuted this action, particularly given that this case was unusually complex relative to most securities fraud class actions. ”

–Hon. Dickran M. Tevrizian (Ret.), U.S. District Court Judge, Central District of California
