It was almost inevitable, maybe even a truism of class action law—an event-driven scandal and market collapse leads to a hefty securities settlement. Consumer credit agency Equifax is now following up last year’s
$650 million data breach consumer settlement with a related securities litigation fund. Investors
claimed that the now infamous data breach, which affected 143 million Americans, drove
down stock prices—eventually by almost 36%. Investors in Equifax common stock during the class period
are eligible to participate in the $149 million settlement.
This litigation is one of several 9-digit settlements that
CCC is tracking this year—indeed, we are already filing claims in two 10-digit
settlements. And in each case, our team will be ready to review trade data, hunt down every eligible securitiy identifier, and then steward each claim from the date we file, throughout the review process, and until the distribution fund is completely depleted. If you have any questions about the Equifax litigation, or about any financial settlement notice you receive or that is now pending in the courts, then give us a call today at 312-204-6970.
