Sonic Corp. Customer Data Breach Litigation Settlement

Welcome to the Sonic Corporation Customer Data Breach Litigation Settlement Website

A Settlement has been reached with Sonic in a class action lawsuit asserting claims against several Sonic entities relating to a data breach arising out of a third-party cyber attack in 2017 that targeted the point of sale systems of Sonic Drive-In locations in an effort to steal customer payment card information (the “Data Breach”).  Sonic denies all of the claims in the lawsuit. The Settlement does not establish who is right, and is not an admission of fault, but rather reflects a compromise to end the lawsuit.

The Settlement includes all residents of the United States of America who made a purchase at any one of the  325 impacted Sonic Drive-In locations and paid using a credit or debit card from April 7, 2017 through October  28, 2017 (the “Relevant Time Period”).

The Settlement provides payments to people who submit valid and  timely claims attesting (i) that they made a purchase using a credit or debit card at one of the 325 impacted  Sonic Drive-In locations during the Relevant Time Period (Category 1), or (ii) that they made a purchase using a credit or debit card at one of the 325 impacted Sonic Drive-In locations during the Relevant Time Period and that they experienced fraudulent or unauthorized charges on the credit or debit card used at the impacted location any time thereafter up through February 28, 2018 (Category 2).
