Schnucks agrees to settlement over security breach

Posted:
ST. LOUIS (WREX) -

A settlement is close in the lawsuit over a computer system breach that compromised the credit and debit cards of 2.4 million Schnucks Markets customers.

According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, St. Louis Circuit Judge David Dowd received a preliminary settlement on Wednesday. He is expected to rule on the settlement in the upcoming weeks.

Schnucks has agreed to the settlement, which would require the chain to pay up to $10 to its customers for every credit or debit card that had fraudulent charges. Those charges were credited or reversed later on.

Customers would also be paid for some out-of-pocket costs and for time spent handling the fraudulent charges. The total amount paid to an individual will be capped at $175.
