As lead counsel in the OPM data breach litigation, we obtained a reversal of the dismissal of claims brought on behalf of 22 million federal employees and job applicants whose highly personal facts were hacked and stolen. We then negotiated a settlement that, pending court approval, will provide for minimum $700 payments to class members with compensable loss.
Similarly, in Corona v. Sony Pictures Entertainment, we represented Sony employees in the wake of a cyberattack attributed to North Korea as retaliation for the parody film The Interview. Girard Sharp and its co-lead counsel secured a settlement that fully reimbursed class members’ actual losses and provided extended credit monitoring—a structure adopted in many subsequent data breach settlements.
