Brown v Moran Foods LLC

Case No. 2019 CH 02576

NOTICE OF PROPOSED CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT
Brown v. Moran Foods LLC, 2019 CH 02576 (Cook Cty., Ill.) 
(Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois)

If you used a finger scanning timekeeping system at a Moran Foods LLC d/b/a Save A Lot, Ltd. facility in the State of Illinois between February 27, 2014 and December 15, 2020, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.

An Illinois State Court authorized this Notice. You are not being sued. 
This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit between Moran Foods LLC d/b/a Save A Lot, Ltd. (“Defendant”) and some of its current and former Illinois employees. The suit alleges that Defendant violated an Illinois law called the Biometric Information Privacy Act (“BIPA”) by collecting employees’ fingerprints on time clocks in Illinois without obtaining their informed written consent. Defendant denies any wrongdoing and maintains that it has not violated any laws. The Settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and expenses associated with ongoing litigation.

You are included in the Settlement if you used a finger scanner for timekeeping purposes at Defendant’s locations in the state of Illinois between February 27, 2014 and December 15, 2020 with the exceptions detailed below. 

If you’re eligible and the Court approves the Settlement, a check will automatically be mailed to you for approximately $625, which accounts for payment of the costs—if approved by the Court—of administrative expenses and legal fees. Save A Lot has also agreed to comply with BIPA in the future.
