Judge Approves $85M ‘Zoombombing’ Settlement

A federal judge in San Francisco has approved an $85 million settlement with injunctive relief in a class action over so-called Zoombombings.

The order from U.S. District Judge Laurel Beeler in the Northern District of California follows preliminary approval last July in a case that included claims of invasion of privacy and negligence.

Judge Jay Gandhi, a retired federal judge and a member of the JAMS Board of Directors, mediated the matter. In the final approval order, the U.S. District Court described Judge Gandhi as “a respected mediator with significant class-action and data-privacy experience.”
