 Home Depot Litigation   
Home Depot Data Breach Litigation

WHAT ARE THE CONSUMER PLAINTIFFS’ CLAIMS AGAINST HOME DEPOT?

Plaintiffs’ claims relate to the breach of security of sensitive customer identity and financial information that Home Depot obtained from customers and maintained on its computer system.  On September 8, 2014, Home Depot confirmed in a press release that its payment data systems had been breached, potentially impacting customers that used debit or credit cards at its U.S. and Canadian stores (the “Customer Data Breach”).   On September 18, 2014, Home Depot announced in a press release that the Customer Data Breach was then estimated to have compromised approximately 56 million unique payment cards.  On November 6, 2014, Home Depot reported  that in addition to the previously disclosed payment card data, separate files containing approximately 53 million email addresses were also taken.  Plaintiffs assert claims on behalf of themselves and other Home Depot consumers throughout the United States whose customer identity and financial information was improperly accessed from April to at least September 2014.

Plaintiffs allege that as a consequence of Home Depot’s failure to protect the personal and financial information of its customers, as well as its slow response to repeated warnings and known cyber threats, the Plaintiffs’ and putative Class Members’ customer identity and financial information is now being sold, distributed and made available in various forms on the Internet to identity thieves and other criminals who seek to use that information to engage in wrongful conduct.


WHAT IS THE RELEVANT TIME PERIOD?

The Home Depot Customer Data Breach occurred from April 2014 to at least September 2014.


WHERE ARE THE HOME DEPOT DATA BREACH CASES PENDING?

The Home Depot Consumer Data Breach cases are pending before the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, at the Richard B. Russell Federal Building and Courthouse, 75 Spring Street, SW 2211 U.S. Courthouse, Atlanta, GA 30303-3361.  The Court has established certain deadlines and appointed certain lawyers, specifically Roy E. Barnes and John R. Bevis among others, to represent the interests of affected consumers.

Litigation Highlights

  

 SETTLEMENT HAS BEEN REACHED!   BLG attorneys Roy Barnes, John Bevis and Cameron Tribble are pleased to announce they have reached a $36,000,000 settlement with payday lending giant, Cash America International, Inc.  The settlement ends a 9 year battle (in 6 different courts) over the legality of high-interest payday loans made to more than 25,000 Georgians from October 2001 to April 2006.  A hearing for Preliminary Approval of the settlement will take place on November 4, 2013 at 9am in the State Court of Cobb County, Courtroom 4C. 

**UPDATE TO CLASS MEMBERS** 

Congrats to Roy Barnes, John Bevis and Cam Tribble on a victory at the Georgia Court of Appeals against Georgia Cash America, a large payday lender.  The Court of Appeals agreed with BLG after reviewing a persuasive, well researched brief by Cam Tribble, that the borrowers’ claims against Georgia Cash America should be tried to a jury.  After 8 years of litigation, Georgia Cash will not be able to escape a jury’s determination of their many violations of law.
