A settlement has been proposed in a class action lawsuit against Overlake Hospital Medical Center and Overlake Medical Clinics, LLC (collectively “Overlake”) relating to a cyberattack against Overlake’s computer systems that occurred in December 2019 (the “Data Incident”). An investigation by Overlake could not rule out that the third parties accessed specific information stored in the email accounts, which may have included one or more of the following: demographic information (such as full name, date of birth, phone number, address), health insurance information (such as name of insurer or insurance ID number), and certain health information (such as diagnosis and treatment information) related to the care received at Overlake.

Nature of the Case

The Lawsuit claims that Overlake was responsible for the Data Incident and asserts claims such as: negligence; intrusion upon seclusion/invasion of privacy; breach of fiduciary duty; breach of confidence; breach of express contract; and breach of implied contract. The Lawsuit seeks, among other things, payment for persons who were injured by the Data Incident.

Overlake has denied and continues to deny all of the claims made in the Lawsuit, as well as all charges of wrongdoing or liability against it.
