RI Consumers File Class Action Suit Against Target for Data Breach

Friday, December 20, 2013


A nationwide class action lawsuit has been filed against Target by two Rhode Islanders, William B. Knowles and Patricia A.Doyle, relating to the retailer's massive data breach.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island, alleges that Target breached its duties to safeguard the confidential financial and personal information of nearly 40 million members of the proposed nationwide class.

“I am hopeful that the class action lawsuit will provide relief to the millions of consumers affected by one of the largest data breaches in US history,” said Peter N. Wasylyk, attorney for the Plaintiffs.

Really? You're trying to blame Target for this. Instead of putting resources toward a lawsuit against Target, why not work with them and law enforcement to find this person or persons, so they can be brought to justice.

Justice being a town square, televised execution. This will send the message that even if you have the skills, it may not be a good idea to steal identities.
Of course you lawyers are doing this for the wronged people, so you're doing this for free.

I wonder if there will be a class action suit against the feds when someone steels ID in Obamacare.

When the clerk asks you to sign up for a store credit card, people simply need to say NO. By signing up, you're opening yourself up to pay an additional 20% or more for the merchandise you just purchased.

And now, a hacker just stole all your personal information that you used to apply for that card.

At what point exactly, are people actually going to wake the F up in this country??? We truly have become a country of absolute friggin idiots. The dumb keep getting dumber.
