Judge rejects TD Ameritrade data theft settlement

AP | JOSH FUNK | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

OMAHA, Neb. — A federal judge has refused to approve a class-action settlement over contact information stolen from online brokerage TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.

U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker in San Francisco says the deal offers little significant benefit to the more than 6 million current and former customers affected. The proposed deal offered anti-spam software and a promise of tighter security at TD Ameritrade.

Walker rejected the deal in an order filed Friday despite giving it preliminary approval earlier this year. He said the deal appeared to do more for Ameritrade and for the plaintiffs' lawyers, who were set to receive nearly $1.9 million in legal fees, than it did for the victims.

Anyone who held an Ameritrade account or provided an e-mail address to the company before Sept. 14, 2007, could have benefited from the settlement if it had been approved. The breached database included information on 6.2 million current and former customers.

Ameritrade spokeswoman Kim Hillyer said Monday the company was disappointed in the ruling.
