Overview

IMPORTANT UPDATE

THERE IS STILL TIME TO SUBMIT A CLAIM AND RECEVIE YOUR PORTION OF THE PRO RATA SETTLEMENT. THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A CLAIM HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JUNE 6, 2019.

A Settlement has been reached between Los Robles Regional Medical Center (“Defendant” or “Los Robles”) and Plaintiff Leah Chapin (“Class Representative” or “Plaintiff”), individually and on behalf of the Settlement Class. The Final Order of Approval for the underlying lawsuit, entitled Chapin v. Los Robles Regional Medical Center, Civil Case No. 56-2014-00454001-CU-NP-VTA, was signed on June 6, 2016 in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Ventura.

Los Robles denies Plaintiff’s allegations and denies any liability, and the Court has not decided that Los Robles did anything wrong. The Court has approved the settlement which affects your legal rights, and you have a choice to make now.

To qualify as a class member, you must have received medical treatment at Los Robles in February or March of 2014 and have received written notice in March 2014 from Los Robles about the potential unauthorized access to, or theft of, your medical records.

The Settlement will provide a fund of $300,000.00 to pay claims for class members, attorneys’ fees and the costs of administration. Individual class members whose medical records were stolen during transport (“Eligible Claimant Group A”) shall receive up to $1,000.00, and individual class members whose medical records arrived at the destination (“Eligible Claimant Group B”) shall receive up to $100.00. If the amount of Net Settlement Fund is insufficient to pay these respective awards, the payment shall be reduced in a proportionate or pro rata basis.
