The class action settlement provides for a total payment of $538,125.00 that Jame Roll has agreed to pay to settle the claims of Settlement Class Members. Subject to Court approval, the gross settlement fund shall be reduced by the following: (1) an award of up to thirty-five percent (35%) of the total settlement for Settlement Class Counsel’s attorney fees and litigation costs; (2) a Service Award of $5,000 to Class Representative Sebastian Lazaro Cruz; and (3) the Settlement Administrator’s costs estimated to be less than $30,000.00. Following these reductions, the remaining amount shall be the net settlement fund, which shall be distributed equally to Settlement Class Members who timely return valid claim forms (“Settlement Class Participants”).
The amount of money each Settlement Class Participant will receive will depend on the number of Settlement Class Members who timely return valid claim forms. Settlement Class Counsel estimate that Settlement Class Participants will receive approximately $275 to $400 each.
Unless Settlement Class Members exclude themselves from the settlement as explained below, they will give up all claims against the Released Parties arising out of or relating to the collection, storage, possession, disclosure or use of data derived from fingerprints or finger scanning at timekeeping systems of Jame Roll in Illinois, between August 19, 2016 to May 24, 2022, including but not limited to claims under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act including statutory and common law claims, as well as related claims for liquidated damages, penalties, attorney fees and costs, expenses, and interest.
The “Released Parties” include Jame Roll and their current and former owners, affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, divisions, officers, directors, shareholders, agents, employees, attorneys, insurers, benefit plans, predecessors, successors. The full release of claims is set forth in the Settlement Agreement.
