If you were a LifeLabs customer on or before December 17, 2019 you could be eligible for part of the settlement in a class-action lawsuit stemming from a cyberattack almost four years ago.
LifeLabs announced further details on Thursday about the settlement that will cost LifeLabs at least $4.9 million.
LifeLabs announced it was a target of a cyber attack in October 2019 and that millions of LifeLab customers may have had personal information , including lab results accessed.
The Ontario Supreme Court of Justice will hold a hearing on October 25 to potentially approve the settlement.
As part of the proposed settlement, LifeLabs would “not admit … any allegation of unlawful conduct” or liability.
As many as 85,000 Ontario customers including thousands in Sault Ste. Marie alone could be part of the class-action according to KPMG.

Those who do not agree with the proposal, can launch their own lawsuit.
