Ebarle Class Settlement

  • Obtain more details about the class action lawsuit entitled Ebarle, et al. v. LifeLock Inc which is pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
  • The deadline to submit a claim in case number 3:15-cv-00258-HSG is 04/29/2016
  • Any class members who fails to submit a claim by the given deadline will miss out on the $68 million settlement

The Ebarle class settlement was filed by Napoleon Ebarle and Jeanne Stamm (lead plaintiffs) because in their opinion LifeLock failed to keep its promise of continuous security.  The lead plantiffs claim LifeLock was in violation of the Arizona’s Consumer Fraud Act due to:

  • Comprehensive services in detecting fraud
  • Timely and continuous alerts of potential fraud 24-hours a day, every day of the year
  • Keep customers’ personal data (credit card, social security, and bank account numbers) secure
  • A “$1 Million Total Service Guarantee,” which provides insurance up to $1 million against identity theft

LifeLock denies any actions of wrong doing but has agreed to settle.

It should be noted that the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) also filed similar complaints against LifeLock in the summer of 2015 stating that LifeLock “falsely advertised that it (LifeLock) provided fraud alerts to customers as soon as they became aware of a potential threat between January 2012 and December 2014“.  As a result of this FTC filing LifeLock was force to pay a fine in the amount of $116,000,000.
