Eric Katz reports:
A federal judge on Wednesday formally finalized a $63 million settlement that will soon allow thousands of current and former federal employees to receive payouts as part of the agreement stemming from a 2015 breach of data maintained by the Office of Personnel Management.
District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said all parties had fulfilled their obligations since they reached a preliminary agreement in June, including taking proper steps to notify the victims of the hack of their eligibility to potentially receive monetary damages. Jackson added in her order the settlement is “fair, reasonable and adequate, and in the best interests of the class.”
