Superior Court of the State of California, County of Los Angeles | Case No. 19STCV11000
Please be advised that the Court has continued the Final Approval Hearing to June 29, 2021 at 10:00 a.m.
A proposed settlement has been given preliminary approval in a class action lawsuit against Creation Entertainment, Inc. (“Creation”) related to a breach of Creation’s computer systems from approximately February 1, 2018 through October 10, 2018 that was publicly disclosed by Creation on March 19, 2019, Christofferson, et al., v. Creation Entertainment, Inc., Case No. 19STCV11000. Creation denies that it did anything wrong.
You are a part of the settlement if you resided in the United States and made a purchase using a credit or debit card from Creation and your Personal Information was accessed and/or compromised by unauthorized individuals as part of the Security Incident.
The proposed Settlement would create a Settlement Fund of $950,000.00 funded by Creation that would be used to pay: (i) Set-tlement Class Members who submit valid claims; (ii) costs of Claims Administration, which are estimated to be $66,000; (iii) any attorney fees of up to 33% of the Settlement Fund (or $313,500) and reasonable expenses of up to $20,000 awarded by the Court to Class Counsel; and (iv) any service awards to the Representative Plaintiffs awarded by the Court. The Settlement also releases all claims of Settlement Class Members against Creation arising from or related to the Security Incident, as detailed in the Settlement Agreement.
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.
