- In re: Anthem Inc. Data Breach Litigation, Case No. 5:15-md-02617-LHK,
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
Class members in the Anthem data breach class action lawsuit claim Anthem did not adequately safeguard consumers’ personal information in regards to a cyber attack that resulted in the personal information theft of around 79 million people. The information in question was stored in Anthem databases and included names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, health care ID numbers, home addresses, email addresses and employment information.
The defendants in the Anthem Inc. Data Breach Litigation are defined as Anthem, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and certain Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies who had members with data stored on Anthem’s databases that was compromised due to the Anthem data breach.
Anthem Inc. denies any actions of wrong doing but have agreed to settlement terms in order to avoid the unknown expense of a trial. Anthem will also establish a $115 million fund to provide payment for out-of-pocket losses Class Members suffered or credit monitoring services to protect Class Members from future harm.
All class members who file valid claims in the case will be represented by Eve Cervantez (Altshuler Berzon LLP), Andrew N. Friedman (Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC), Eric Gibbs (Girard Gibbs LLP), and Michael W. Sobol (Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP).
Anthem Inc. will be represented by Craig A. Hoover, E. Desmond Hogan, Peter R. Bisio, Michael Maddigan, and Allison M. Holt (Hogan Lovells US LLP)
