CAPITAL ONE CLASS ACTION
Update: Class Action Discontinued (December 12, 2022)
On August 9, 2019, a proposed class action was commenced in Ontario by David Slapinski (Court File Number CV-19-00625262-00CP) alleging that on or around March 22 and 23, 2019, Paige A. Thompson (“Thompson”) stole personal information from servers that had been leased by Capital One Financial Corporation, Capital One, N.A., Capital One Bank (USA), N.A., and Capital One Services (Canada) Inc., (collectively “Capital One”) from Amazon Web Services (the “Claim”). The Claim alleged that as a consequence of this data breach, the personal and confidential information of an estimated 6 million Canadians was compromised.
The parties have reached an agreement to discontinue the Claim. The discontinuance was approved by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. The discontinuance relates only to the Claim and not to any other outstanding claims which relate to the data breach that is the subject of the Claim or to claims against other institutions in relation to similar data breaches.
