Settlement Approved in CareCentrix Data Breach Litigation
On February 15, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas granted final approval to a class action settlement on behalf of current and former employees of CareCentrix, a home healthcare services provider, who had their personal and tax information compromised in a data breach.
The settlement permits for substantial monetary relief, three-bureau credit monitoring, and business practice commitments. In approving the settlement, the Honorable Kenneth G. Gale held that: “The Court finds that this Settlement reflects an outstanding result for the Class in a case with a significant level of risk. The Settlement provides significant monetary benefits to compensate consumers for Out-of-Pocket Losses, as well as preventative relief in the form of Credit Monitoring Services, and important commitments by CareCentrix as to its data security practices. This relief compares very favorably to settlements in other data breach class actions.”
Barrett Vahle of Stueve Siegel Hanson was appointed settlement class counsel on behalf of class members.
