KGG FILES CLASS ACTION FOR DATA BREACH AGAINST EQUIFAX
IN THE US DISTRICT COURT, NORTHERN DISTRICT OF GEORGIA
On July 29, 2017, Equifax Inc., discovered that it had failed to maintain the security for the personal information of approximately 143 million US consumers and that the vulnerability of its database and electronic files had been compromised by hackers obtaining that personal information, including consumers’ names, social security numbers, birthdates, addresses, and in some instances, driver’s licenses and credit card information. Equifax withheld from the public the fact that the data breach occurred, until on or about September 7, 2017, when it issued a press release informing consumers of the data breach. At that time, it also provided a link to a website for consumers to learn whether they were a victim of the data breach. KGG has filed a class action suit alleging that this colossal breach of personal information and invasion of privacy was due to the negligence of Equifax and its failure to provide adequate security.
The firm has filed its class action complaint for consumers nationwide, and for those in New York, New Jersey, and Ohio, alleging damages as a result of the data breach.
