Home Depot Already Faces Breach Lawsuit
Home Depot has been hit with a class-action lawsuit stemming from a suspected data breach at the home improvement retailer. While one legal expert portrays the lawsuit as premature because the investigation is still under way, another says the filing was made because it's highly likely the breach will be confirmed. The lawsuit, filed Sept. 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, alleges that the retailer failed to meet its legal obligation to protect customers’ credit card and personal information. It also accuses Home Depot of not notifying its customers about the alleged breach.
