The attorneys at FBFG have settled millions of dollars in claims. Some notable settlements achieved by our attorneys include:

 

 • Saint Joseph Health System Medical Information Cases, JCCP No. 4716 (Cal. Sup. Ct.).  Complex class action on behalf of approximately 31,800 patients who were victimized by a data breach.  An FBFG lawyer was appointed co-lead class counsel.  The Court denied Saint Joseph’s demurrer and the Court of Appeals upheld that ruling.  The Court certified a class and denied Saint Joseph’s summary judgment motion; the Court of Appeals upheld those rulings as well.  On February 4, 2016, the Court finally approved a settlement valued at approximately $35 million.  This settlement, which was reached on the eve of trial, provides the more money per capita to individual class members than any other known data breach settlement.

 

 • Wise v. Energy Plus Holdings, LLC, No. 1:11-cv-07345 (S.D.N.Y.).  Nationwide class action alleging that Energy Plus falsely claimed to offer competitive electricity rates when its prices are substantially higher than market rates in violation of New York Gen. Bus. L. § 349 and other consumer protection laws.  On September 17, 2013, the Court certified the class, appointed the lawyers of FBFG as lead class counsel, and approved the settlement valued at over $11 million.

 

 • Zellagui v. MCD Pizza, LLC, No. 14-cv-1475 (E.D. Pa.).  State-wide class action alleging minimum wage violations.  The Court appointed the lawyers of FBFG as lead class counsel and entered a judgment of $4.5 million.

 

 • In Re Michaels Stores, Inc., No. 11-cv-10920 (D. Mass.).  State-wide class action alleging that Michaels Stores unlawfully collected consumers’ private information.  After securing a groundbreaking decision by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, establishing that consumers whose privacy has been violated may bring consumer protection claims against companies that unlawfully collect personal identification information, the lawyers of FBFG were appointed as co-lead class counsel and negotiated a class-wide settlement, which the Court approved.

 

 • Miller v. MAC Cosmetics, Inc., No. 13-cv-1350 (D. Mass.).  State-wide class action alleging MAC unlawfully collected consumers’ personal identification information.  On March 2, 2016, the Court granted final approval to a settlement that is believed to have awarded participating class members the highest amount per person obtained in any Massachusetts personal identification information and appointed the lawyers of FBFG as class counsel.

 

 • Bellaspica v. PJPA, LLC, No. 13-3014 (E.D.
