Eddie Bauer Data Breach

In 2016, hackers accessed Eddie Bauer’s Point of Sale systems and installed malicious software that infected all 350 American and Canadian Eddie Bauer stores. The security breach compromised the names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, card verification values, and other credit and debit card information of Eddie Bauer customers. 

As a result of the breach, financial institutions, including Veridian Credit Union, incurred costs related to cancellation and re-issue of their account-holder’s payment cards, as well as the need to provide additional customer support. TBS attorneys Chase Alvord and Kim Stephens represent Veridian Credit Union in the class action suit.

On June 12, 2019 United States District Court Judge James L. Robart preliminarily approved a $9.8 million Settlement Agreement that will compensate impacted credit union account holders, improve Eddie Bauer’s security, and cover legal fees and administration costs.

Each Settlement Class Member will be individually notified through the U.S. Mail and the Settlement Administrator will establish a toll-free number and Settlement Website to provide information about the Settlement. The deadline to file a claim will be October 25, 2019. 

The hearing for final approval is scheduled for October 25, 2019.

    Chase...thank you for your professional assistance in the resolution of the recent lawsuit against me. I could not have obtained such a favorable outcome without your assistance even though I am a lawyer myself and have handled similar matters during my over 40 year legal career.

    You have saved me tens of thousands of dollars over what I could have obtained had I tried to handle the matter myself. With hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake you were worth every penny of your most reasonable fee. Beyond that was the peace of mind for both me and my wife during the process, and you can’t put a price tag on that. Your knowledge and expertise were much appreciated.
