COLUMBUS, OH, February 8, 2016 − An action brought by a former customer against Enigma Software Group USA, LLC ("ESG") was dismissed in its entirety on February 5, 2016 in federal court in Columbus, Ohio. The plaintiff had filed suit against ESG in 2013 alleging that ESG failed to cancel her subscription when requested and sought to represent a class of plaintiffs. The court found no basis for this, dismissing most of her claims on summary judgment in 2014 and striking her class allegations last month. The final dismissal was entered on February 5, 2016.
Ryan Gerding, spokesman for ESG, said of the development, "ESG is delighted with this result. The court carefully considered the claims and dismissed them as meritless. It took some time for ESG to dispose of this case, but it doesn't pay plaintiffs in frivolous cases. Period." He added, "ESG makes some of the best anti-malware products on the market. The company thanks its loyal customers for their 15+ years of support."
