If you were notified of a Ransomware Attack on Scripps that occurred in April 2021, you may be entitled to benefits from a settlement, including at least $100.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Scripps Health (“Scripps” or “Defendant”) regarding a Ransomware Attack that resulted in an unauthorized person gaining access to Scripps’ network, deploying malware, and, on April 29, 2021, acquiring copies of some of the documents stored on Scripps’ network.
Your Legal Rights and Options in This Lawsuit
Submit a Claim Form
by March 23, 2023
The only way to receive the Cash Payment Benefit and/or a Cash Reimbursement of Documented Ordinary/Extraordinary Out-of-Pocket Losses is to submit a
Claim Form by the deadline. You do not need to submit a Claim Form to receive identity theft protection and fraud resolution services. You can use the Enrollment Code listed on the Postcard Notice mailed to you to enroll once the Settlement is finalized.
by March 8, 2023
If you do not exclude yourself from the Settlement Class, you may submit an objection telling the Court why you do not like the Settlement. If your objection is overruled, you will be bound by the Settlement.
by March 8, 2023
If you ask to be excluded, you will not receive a cash payment or the opportunity to
enroll in 36 months of free identity theft protection and fraud resolution services, but you may be able to file your own lawsuit against Scripps for the same claims. This is the only option that leaves you the right to file your own lawsuit against Scripps for the claims that are being resolved by the Settlement. In order to be effective, you must submit a request for exclusion by the deadline.
If you do nothing, you will remain in the Settlement Class and forfeit your right to receive the Cash Payment Benefit and a Cash Reimbursement of Documented Ordinary/Extraordinary Out-of-Pocket Losses. If you do nothing, you will still be eligible to
enroll in 36 months of free identity theft protection and fraud resolution services.
These rights and options—
and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained further in the Notice on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) page of this website.
