LONDON, ON, May 5, 2020 /CNW/ - A class action is currently being litigated with respect to a data breach alleged to have been perpetrated by Spencer Brydges ("Brydges"), a former student, at Laurentian University of Sudbury ("Laurentian"). The class action was brought on behalf of certain Laurentian students and staff members against both Laurentian and Brydges
The Plaintiff and Brydges have reached a settlement with respect to the claims against Brydges only. The Settlement has no impact on the litigation against Laurentian, which will continue to be litigated. The proposed class action against Laurentian has not been certified to proceed as a class action and the Plaintiff's claims against Laurentian have not been evaluated on their merits.
In consideration for Brydges' cooperation in the litigation against Laurentian, the action will be dismissed against Brydges. Please note, if you wish to object to the terms of the proposed Settlement with Brydges, you must do so by October 9, 2020.
More details (including a copy of the Settlement Agreement and Court approved notice), will be posted at www.mckenzielake.com.
