Parent company Ruby Life Inc agrees to pay settlement following class-action lawsuits from plaintiffs who allege company misrepresented level of security
The parent company of hacked extramarital dating site Ashley Madison has agreed to pay an $11.2m (£8.57m) settlement to US-based users of the site, ending a two-year court battle.
Ruby Life Inc agreed to pay the settlement following a number of class-action lawsuits “alleging inadequate data security practices and misrepresentations regarding Ashley Madison”. It will pay for, among other things, “payments to settlement class members who submit valid claims for alleged losses resulting from the data breach and alleged misrepresentations as described further in the proposed settlement agreement”.
