Plaintiffs in the Target class action lawsuits, which were eventually consolidated into a multidistrict litigation, claimed that the retailer failed to protect consumer information during a cybersecurity breach which occurred over the 2013 holiday season.

The Target data breach reportedly affected between 70 million and 110 million Target customers who shopped at the retailer’s stores in November and December of 2013.

In order to benefit from the settlement, consumers needed to file a claim by July 31, 2015.

In order to benefit from the settlement, consumers needed to file a valid claim by Aug. 17, 2016.
