Scott Godes, partner and member of the firm’s Policyholder Insurance Recovery Group, was recently quoted in Cyber Risk Network’s article, “10 million settlement with consumers a ‘good deal’ for Target, insurers.” In a recent class-action lawsuit, Target Corp and consumers have agreed to a $10 million settlement after a data breach during 2013.  Consumers now will have to demonstrate harm by documenting direct losses from the breach, such as cost to replace identification. Among other things, Scott is quoted saying, “The settlement should do nothing to consumers’ ability to prove harm and/or damages. The case never made it to a stage where there was showing of actual harm. At this point, there were only allegations of harm. The fact the case settled should not affect the state of the law and the bar that plaintiffs must overcome.” Read the full article.
