What is this lawsuit and Settlement about?
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Quezada, et al. v. ArbiterSports, LLC, Case No. 2:20-CV-05193-TJS.
Plaintiffs allege that in July 2020, cyber-criminals accessed certain devices in ArbiterSports, LLC’s (“ArbiterSports”) network and accessed and obtained the personal information of ArbiterSports’ users. Plaintiffs allege that ArbiterSports notified the individuals whose information was potentially impacted on or around August 24, 2020. There has been no admission of wrongdoing or liability by ArbiterSports. Plaintiffs and ArbiterSports have agreed to the Settlement to avoid the risk, cost, and time of further litigation.
