Mason Lietz & Klinger represents persons whose personal data was compromised by a targeted cyber-attack against Defendant Kemper Corporation (“Kemper”) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Infinity Insurance Company (“Infinity”) (collectively, “Defendants”), a provider of auto insurance specializing in specialty or difficult-to-insure drivers. That cyber-attack and subsequent data breach on December 26, 2020, resulted in the compromise of highly sensitive personally identifiable information (“PII”) belonging to millions of customers, prospective customers, other consumers, and employees from Defendants’ computer networks, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, medical leave information, and workers’ compensation claim information. Defendants began notifying consumers and state Attorneys General about the Data Breach on or about March 16, 2021, three months after the initial cyber-attack. After the initial notification of Data Breach, Infinity discovered, on April 25, 2021, an additional potential security incident wherein an unauthorized individual potentially accessed the names and driver’s license numbers of hundreds of thousands of additional individuals. On May 25, 2021, Infinity began notifying these additional individuals of the Data Breach.
The Class consists of approximately 6.5 million individuals. On October 27, 2021, the Court granted preliminary approval of a $17.6 million settlement.
The case is Carrera Aguallo v. Kemper Corp., No. 1:21-cv-01883 (N.D. Ill. Oct. 27, 2021)
