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.
