TMZ reports Ashley Madison, the so-called cheaters’ website, has struck a deal to pay $11.2 million to settle a class action lawsuit by those whose identities were revealed by a hack of its registered users.

The account says some with multiple accounts could get up to $3,500, though with millions of potential claimants, I’d guess most won’t be in line for much of a payment. Some might just as soon not be reminded of the matter by getting mail at home about a settlement with Ashley Madison.
