Target yesterday settled a remaining chunk of civil claims arising from the 2013 data breach that put millions of customers’ credit and debit card data at risk. [Settlement agreement | motion for approval] The $39 million settlement is with a class of banks who issued credit cards compromised in the breach, who argue that they were stuck with the bill for fraudulent charges not paid by cardholders and that they incurred administrative expenses responding to the incident. As part of the settlement, Target also will cease its challenge to a $19 assessment made by MasterCard to the extent that the assessment benefits the settling banks. Because Target previously settled disputes with Visa and affected consumers, yesterday’s settlement means that Target is now well on its way to resolving its civil exposure arising from the breach.
