CPT Group, Inc. announced today that the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles preliminarily approved a proposed settlement in Christofferson, et al., v. Creation Entertainment, Inc., No. 19STCV11000, a class action alleging that Defendant Creation Entertainment, Inc. (“Creation”) failed to implement or maintain adequate security measures to protect the confidential personal information entrusted to it by Creation customers which resulted in a massive data breach of Creation’s systems from approximately February 1, 2018 to October 10, 2018 (the “Security Incident”). Creation denies all of the claims and denies it did anything wrong.
If you are a U.S resident who made a purchase from Creation Entertainment, Inc. using a debit or credit card from February 1, 2018 through October 10, 2018, you may be eligible to participate in this settlement and receive a payment.
The Settlement allows Settlement Class Members to make a claim for one of two types of Settlement Payments: (1) any Settlement Class Member may submit a claim for a Basic Settlement Payment of $200 even if they did not experience any unauthorized charges; and (2) Settlement Class Members who experienced unauthorized charges on their credit or debit cards that were not reimbursed, and that the Settlement Class Member believes in good faith were more likely than not a result of the Security Incident, may submit claims for an Extraordinary Reimbursement Settlement Payment for reimbursement of up to $10,000 for such charges, up to three hours of time spent dealing with such charges, and certain other out of pocket expenses. These payment amounts may be adjusted upward or downward depending on the number of Settlement Class Members who submit claims, as described in the Settlement Agreement.
