Armon et al. v. Washington State University Case No. 17-2-23244-1 SEA
Welcome to the Settlement Website for the Washington State University Security Incident.
A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit against Washington State University (“WSU” or “Defendant”), arising out of the security incident that WSU announced it discovered in April 2017, which compromised the private information (“Personal Information”) of over 1 million individuals (the “Security Incident”).
If you were mailed a notice from WSU on or around June 9, 2017, about the Security Incident, you are included in this Settlement as a “Settlement Class Member.”
Under the Settlement, WSU has agreed to (1) provide credit monitoring services and identity theft insurance; (2) provide cash payments to Settlement Class Member for reimbursement of certain documented Out-of-Pocket Costs incurred as a result of the Security Incident; (3) provide cash payments up to $15 per hour for up to three hours for time spent addressing or remedying issues plausibly connected to the Security Incident; and (4) pay for the costs of the settlement administration, Court-approved attorneys’ fees and expenses, and Service Payments for named Plaintiffs. In addition, WSU has taken or will take certain remedial measures and has enhanced security measures that it will continue to implement.
Your legal rights will be affected whether you act or do not act. You should read this entire website carefully.
