Tying some loose ends: Target settled with Visa in August to resolve claims from the retailer's massive 2013 data breach in which 110 million consumers' records were stolen, including 40 million credit- and debit-card numbers. The value of that settlement was up to $67 million, depending upon how many card issuers worldwide accept that deal. A $19 million settlement with MasterCard fell through.
In March, the retailer agreed to pay $10 million to settle lawsuits by consumers. While the July 31, 2015 deadline has passed for affected shoppers to submit claims, the Target Settlement website listed the next important date is a November 10, 2015 hearing for the Court to approve the settlement. Payments to consumers will happen after the Court approves the settlement.
