Analyzing the Settlement Amount

The settlement fund is capped, and if the total of all valid claims exceeds this cap, payments will be reduced proportionally. The settlement amount was determined to ensure fair distribution to all claimants.

The Reasoning Behind the Settlement

The settlement resolves allegations that Gas South was responsible for the data breach due to inadequate security measures. Gas South denies any wrongdoing but has agreed to the settlement to avoid further litigation and to implement improved security measures.

Remember, the settlement is not yet final, and benefits will only be distributed after the court grants approval and any appeals are resolved. For more information, visit the official settlement website or call 1-855-422-1118.
