Parsons v. Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, LLC, Case No. 3:16-cv-05387-VC
U.S. residents who used a credit, debit, or other payment card between February 16, 2016, and July 7, 2016, at some Kimpton hotels and restaurants may be eligible for a payment from a class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached with Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, LLC (“Kimpton”) in a class action lawsuit about a data security incident that occurred between February 16, 2016 and July 7, 2016.
From February 16, 2016, to July 7, 2016, Kimpton was the victim of a cyberattack in which the attackers installed unauthorized malware on certain servers that processed payment cards used at some Kimpton hotels and restaurants (the “Security Incident”). Kimpton publicly announced the Security Incident on August 31, 2016. The malware used in the Security Incident searched for track data read from the magnetic stripe of payment cards as it was being routed through the affected servers. The malware primarily found track data that contained the card number, expiration date, and internal verification code, but in some instances the malware found the track data that also contains the cardholder name.

The Settlement provides payments to people who submit valid claims for out-of-pocket expenses and charges that were incurred and plausibly arose from the Security Incident, and for other extraordinary unreimbursed monetary losses.
