NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- If you used a credit card or debit card to make a purchase at a store owned and operated by MAPCO Express, Inc. ("MAPCO") between March 1, 2013 and April 30, 2103, the proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit could affect your rights, and entitle you to a settlement.
The plaintiff in a lawsuit called Mandi Phillips v. MAPCO Express, Inc., et al. claims that she and other similarly situated persons suffered losses and damages after MAPCO sustained a Data Breach in the spring of 2013, when certain of its customers' payment card data was stolen from its data systems in a hacking incident. Plaintiff claims that MAPCO was negligent and violated the law by not preventing the Data Breach. The parties to the Phillips lawsuit have asked the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, where the case is pending, to approve a settlement of the dispute on a class-wide basis.

If a Class Member does not choose to submit documentation of his or her losses, he or she may still self-certify the time spent remedying issues related to the Data Breach, of up to 2 hours at $15 per hour. If the total amount of claims received and approved exceeds the total amount of the Settlement Fund, you will receive your pro rata share of the Settlement Fund.
Release of Claims by the Proposed Settlement Class. If the Court approves the Settlement, certain claims the Class Members have against MAPCO will be released and extinguished.
