A Court authorized this Website. This is not an advertisement or a solicitation from a lawyer.
A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit against Wolfe Clinic, P.C., doing business as Wolfe Eye Clinic (“Wolfe”) relating to a targeted cyberattack disclosed on or about June 29, 2021 by Wolfe, a specialty medical eye care and surgical treatment center with locations across the State of Iowa (the “Data Incident”). The computer systems possibly affected by the Data Incident potentially contained certain personal and protected health information relating to current and former Wolfe patients. The Plaintiffs claim that Wolfe was responsible for the Data Incident and assert claims including: negligence, breach of implied contract, breach of confidence and unjust enrichment. Wolfe denies all of the claims and says it did not do anything wrong.
If you are an individual whose private information was maintained on Wolfe’s computer systems and/or network that was compromised in the Data Incident or if you received a notification from Wolfe, you may be included in this Settlement as a “Settlement Class member.”
The Settlement provides payments to people who submit valid claims for reimbursement of certain expenses related to the Data Incident. It also provides for monitoring of financial accounts services to be provided to claimants as well as for improvements to be made to Wolfe’s data security systems.
Your legal rights are affected regardless of whether you do or do not act. Read this website carefully.
