Randall Huffman, et al. v.CommScope, Inc. of North Carolina and CommScope Holding Company, Inc.

 If you received notice from CommScope that your private information was potentially impacted in CommScope’s data incident in 2023, you may be entitled to benefits from a class action settlement.

The Final Approval Hearing has been RESET for Tuesday, 7/23/2024 10:00 AM
in Courtroom #4B, 401 W Trade St, Charlotte, NC 28202
before District Judge Kenneth D. Bell.

  • A Settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit against CommScope Inc. of North Carolina and CommScope Holding Company, Inc. (“CommScope” or “Defendants”). The lawsuit arises from the data incident discovered in March 2023 (“Data Incident”) where the computer systems of CommScope were allegedly hacked. This hack allegedly exposed certain private information of CommScope’s current and former employees.
  • Plaintiffs claim that CommScope was hacked on March 26, 2023 (the “Data Incident”). Plaintiffs claim that this hacking exposed certain personally identifiable information (“PII”) and protected health information (“PHI”)—including, the names, Social Security numbers, addresses, financial account information, date of birth, and medical information provided in connection with employment—of CommScope’s current and former employees.
  • CommScope has denied and continues to deny all of the claims made in the Action, as well as all charges of wrongdoing or liability against them.
  • The Settlement provides Settlement Class Members with their choice of:

(1) three years of credit monitoring services, compensation for unreimbursed economic losses (up to $10,000), and compensation for lost time (up to 6 hours at $25 per hour, up to $150);
(2) an estimated $100 cash payment.

CommScope has agreed to pay a total of $440,000 into a Settlement Fund. After deducting the costs of notice and settlement administration, Court-approved attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, and Class Representative service awards, the net Settlement Fund will be used to pay Settlement Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form.
