Data Breach Settlement Has an Unusual Provision

  • A preliminary settlement of a class action data breach lawsuit against Iowa Health System – which does business as UnityPoint Health – contains an extraordinary provision that could prove quite costly.
  • Unlike settlements in most other data breach class action lawsuits, this one does not contain a “global cap” on the total amount of claims to be paid to victims.
