Rogers & Hardin Partner Josh Gunnemann Comments On Lost Time Provision In Target Data Breach Settlement

March 2015
Rogers & Hardin partner Josh Gunnemann recently commented on the Target data breach settlement for a Law360 article. The article, titled “Target’s $10M Breach Settlement Sets Affordable Standard,” discusses the recently unveiled $10 million settlement of the class action arising from Target Corporation’s 2013 data breach. It is available here.
 
Josh commented on a provision of the settlement terms which allows class members to count toward their unreimbursed damages the time spent addressing unauthorized charges on their account, a relatively novel category of damages. Josh commented “It will be interesting to see if the 'lost time’ concept works its way into other data breach cases as a possible calculation of damages. In a large class, ‘lost time’ could add up to large damages amounts, if it is the type of damages that courts will allow going forward.”
