Judge Rules Consumers Can Sue Target Over 2013 Data Breach

December 19, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson in St. Paul, Minnesota, ruled that consumers can sue Target Corp. over the 2013 data breach involving the retailer and which allegedly “compromised their personal financial information.” Magnuson dismissed Target's assertion that the complainants  had no basis for their allegations “because they could not establish any injury.” According to Target, at least 40 million credit cards were affected by the data breach, resulting probably in as many as 110 million consumers' personal information stolen by hackers.
