What will be the purpose of the Class Action?
Our class action has three goals:
- To require Equifax to make an immediate, lump-sum payment to all persons whose personal information was affected by the privacy breach.
- To have individualized hearings and additional damages paid to anyone who is the subject of further harm arising from the privacy breach, such as identity theft.
- Given the sensitive nature of the information at stake, to require Equifax to create a long-term fund to cover future claims of harm.
