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.
RIGHTS AND OPTIONS IN THIS
You will receive a payment under the Settlement and give
up your rights to sue Defendant about the issues in this case.
You will receive no payment,
but you will retain any rights you currently have to sue Defendant about the

These rights and options—and the deadlines to exercise them—are explained in the notice.
The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the Settlement. Payments will be provided only after any issues with the Settlement are resolved. Please be patient.
