According to ZoomMeetingsClassAction.com the popular video conferencing software giant, Zoom Video Communications, Inc., recently settled a class action lawsuit for a cool (preliminary!) $85 million dollars. Without admitting liability and while refuting allegations of damages, Zoom apparently felt a settlement would be the most advisable path forward. Why?
