The chief judge of the Northern District of Georgia on Thursday gave final approval to a $1.4 billion settlement agreement between Equifax and a class of 147 million consumers whose financial and personal data was exposed.

U.S. District Chief Judge Thomas Thrash Jr. also approved $77.5 million in legal fees and more than $1.4 million in expenses sought by the plaintiff consumers’ class counsel for their role in negotiating what Thrash called “a historically significant data breach settlement.”
