TO: All 2,082 members of the judgment creditor class in the action Leen Abusalem, individually and as the representative of a class of similarly situated persons v. The Standard Market, LLC, Case No. 2019 L 000517 (the “BIPA Class Action”), meaning the 2,082 individuals working for The Standard Market LLC (“Standard Market”) in the State of Illinois who had their fingerprints or finger scans collected, captured, received, obtained, maintained, stored, transmitted, or disclosed between May 9, 2014 and February 22, 2020 by Standard Market.

You were sent a notice in 2021 describing a lawsuit captioned Leen Abusalem et al. v. The Standard Market, LLC, Case No. 2019 L 000517 (the “BIPA Action”) that was brought in this Court. The notice informed you that Leen Abusalem (“Abusalem”) was appointed Class Representative and Abusalem’s attorneys were appointed Class Counsel. The Class Representative and Class Counsel won a judgment pursuant to a settlement in the BIPA Action in 2021 and have sought to collect that judgment from Standard Market’s insurer, West Bend Mutual Insurance Company (“West Bend”), in this case. The Court has ordered the Settlement Administrator to send this notice to you because the parties have reached a settlement and, according to records produced in the BIPA Action, you appear to be a member of the Settlement Class defined above.
