ADT Home Security Settlement
Processed by Dahl Administration
UPDATE (03/29/2019): This Settlement is currently on hold. The Court held a Final Approval Hearing on February 1, 2018 but did not issue a Final Approval Order pending the Ninth Circuit decision on the In re: Hyundai and Kia Fuel Economy Litigation case. We do not know how long this will take.
This website will be updated with further information when it becomes available.

ADT CORPORATION and ADT LLC (collectively “ADT”) has agreed to pay $16,000,000 in a nationwide settlement of all claims alleged against ADT in Michael Edenborough v. The ADT Corporation and ADT, LLC d/b/a ADT Security Services, Case No. 16-cv-02233-JST (USDC ND California) (“the Edenborough Action”) and several other putative class action cases filed on behalf of ADT customers nationwide (“the Related Actions”). The proposed settlement (“the Settlement”) is a compromise of all claims alleging that ADT failed to disclose an alleged vulnerability of the wireless signals in its residential security systems to evasion or jamming by electronic devices. ADT denies the allegations, denies liability, and asserts numerous defenses. The Settlement avoids the costs and risks from continuing the lawsuit, pays money to certain current and former ADT customers, and releases ADT from further liability (except for claims of personal injury or for loss of or damage to property).
