Investigations

Target

Consumer fraud, data breach case brought against Target in connection with one of the largest data breaches in history, when hackers stole the personal and financial information of up to 110 million Target customers. Target’s conduct – failing to take adequate and reasonable measures to ensure its data systems were protected, failing to take available steps to prevent and stop the breach from ever happening, failing to disclose to its customers the material facts that it did not have adequate computer systems and security practices to safeguard customers’ financial account and personal data, and failing to provide timely and adequate notice of the Target data breach – has carved a wide trail of substantial consumer harm and injuries to consumers across the United States. This suit seeks to redress those wrongs. In re Target Customer Data Security Breach Litig., MDL No. 14-2522 (PAM/JJK)(D. Min.. 2014).
