Payment Sent to ExamSoft Class Members
On July 15, 2022, payments were sent to class members as part of the $2.25 million settlement in Frederick, et al. v. ExamSoft Worldwide, Inc. The settlement was approved by Judge David E. Schwartz of the Circuit Court of DuPage County, Illinois on April 7, 2022, and provides class members automatic payments of a pro-rated share of the settlement fund, depending on whether the student took an exam at a public school, private school, or the Illinois Bar Exam. In addition, on or about May 6, 2021, ExamSoft updated its notices and consents and agreed to continue to provide BIPA-compliant notices and obtain BIPA-compliant consents from all test takers in Illinois unless and until BIPA is amended, repealed, invalidated, or otherwise declared unconstitutional.
“We are thrilled that the settlement proceeds are being distributed,” said Philip L. Fraietta, one of the firm’s partners handling the matter. “2020 was a difficult year for students, and we are happy we were able to provide them with meaningful relief through this settlement.”
