For example, we served as one of the court-appointed Steering Committee Members in In re Target Corporation Customer Data Security Breach Litigation. After the court granted class certification to a nationwide class of financial institutions, we obtained a groundbreaking $60 million settlement that covered class members’ out-of-pocket costs sustained as a result of the breach. The settlement, the first of its kind, also required Target to implement numerous data security changes going forward.
