According to the statement:

"The settlement provides a strong recovery with tangible and immediate compensation to injured class members."

The claims against Robinhood relate to the March 2, 2020 incident. On that day, the platform showed the largest gain in history at the time, however, it did not function properly until the next trading session.

A similar failure was recorded on March 9, 2020.

By mid-year, numerous lawsuits against Robinhood had been consolidated into one in a California federal court.
