Ruby Corp and Plaintiffs Reach Proposed Settlement of Class Action Lawsuit Regarding Ashley Madison Data Breach
The parent company of adultery website Ashley Madison has agreed to pay $11.2m (£8.55m) to settle a USA class-action lawsuit over the massive July 2015 data breach that saw the personal details, including credit card details, home addresses and email accounts of millions of users from across the globe, published online.

If the proposed settlement agreement is approved by the Court, ruby will contribute a total of $11.2 million Dollars to a settlement fund, which will provide, 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.
According to Ruby, compensation will be made available to "settlement class members who submit valid claims for alleged losses resulting from the data breach and alleged misrepresentations".
"The parties have agreed to the proposed settlement in order to avoid the uncertainty, expense, and inconvenience associated with continued litigation", said Ruby Life in a statement. Meaning that even if a person's name did appear in the data dump, they might not have been an Ashley Madison member, apparently.
It may also be the case that previous users entitled to compensation simply want to lay the issue to rest and will not claim.
