Is MA Cookie Settlement a Scam? macookiesettlement.com

The MA Cookie Settlement is not a scam. On September 24, 2021, the Honorable Brian A. Davis of the Suffolk Superior Court Business Litigation Session, in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, granted preliminary approval of this class action settlement and directed the litigants to provide the notice about the settlement. Plaintiffs John Doe and Jane Doe (the “Doe Plaintiffs”) filed this lawsuit asserting various legal claims on behalf of a putative class of website users who were also patients. Plaintiffs allege that the Defendants did not obtain sufficient consent when placing third-party analytics tools, cookies, and pixels on their general and publicly accessible websites, including, for example, massgeneralbrigham.org, massgeneral.org, brighamandwomens.org, and dana-farber.org.

Plaintiffs further allege that when using the Informational Websites, code on the Informational Websites caused the Plaintiffs’ internet browsers to disclose information about Plaintiffs’ internet use to third-parties through these analytics tools, cookies, pixels, and related technologies. The Doe Plaintiffs also filed a motion for preliminary injunction seeking to enjoin the Defendants from using the third-party website analytics tools, cookies, pixels, and related technologies on the general and publicly accessible Informational Websites. On November 20, 2020, the Suffolk Superior Court denied Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction, after Defendants had revised the cookie banners and privacy disclosures on the Informational Websites, and granted in part, and denied in part, Defendants’ motion to dismiss the case.
