Welcome to the Kostka v. Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants Settlement Website.
If you used a credit or debit card at a Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurant between April 23, 2019, and October 29, 2020, you may be part of a class action settlement.
Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. and Dickey’s Capital Group, Inc. (together, “Dickey’s”) have agreed to pay $2.35 million to settle a class action lawsuit regarding a data security incident Dickey’s announced in October 2020. As previously announced, between April 23, 2019, and October 29, 2020 (the “Period of the Security Incident”), unauthorized actors accessed Dickey’s point-of-sale systems and obtained customers’ cardholder information, including credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates, and cardholder names on payment cards that were used at Dickey’s locations during that time period (the “Security Incident”). This settlement resolves claims on behalf of all customers who used their credit or debit cards at an affected Dickey’s location during the Period of the Security Incident (the “Settlement”). In addition to the credit monitoring and monetary compensation described below, Dickey’s has implemented and agreed to further implement significant data security enhancements. Dickey’s has denied the allegations made by the plaintiffs in these cases.
The Settlement Class consists of all residents of the United States who used a payment card to make a purchase at a “Dickey’s Barbecue Pit®” restaurant identified in Exhibit B to the Settlement Agreement between April 23, 2019, and October 29, 2020. Excluded from the Class are Dickey’s executive officers and the Judge to whom the Lawsuit is assigned. To view the full list of affected Dickey’s locations, please refer to Exhibit B of the Settlement Agreement.
