On behalf of himself and all class members, the plaintiff seeks injunctive relief and damages suffered by class members as a result of LeafFilter’s failure to maintain the security of the private, personal information in its possession.

If you are or were an employee, prospective employee, contractor, or other person who provided PII to LeafFilter via email between April 1, 2018 and August 21, 2018 and believe you have been affected by the LeafFilter security breach, please contact:
