Current Cases

In re American Medical Collection Agency, Inc., Customer Data Security Breach Litigation

On August 1, 2018 third parties hacked into the American Medical Collection Agency’s (“AMCA”) system and maintained unauthorized access until March 30, 2019.  AMCA is the billing collections vendor for both Quest Diagnostics, LLC (“Quest”) and Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings (“Labcorp”), as well as numerous other entities.  This security breach exposed millions of customers’ sensitive information to the hackers.  In June of 2019, Hausfeld filed two separate complaints on behalf of Quest and LabCorp customers impacted by the breach.

Successes

Target Data Breach - Bank Losses

Hausfeld has filed cases on behalf of First Federal Savings of Lorain, an Ohio bank, and Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union, a New York bank, against Target Corporation, stemming from one of the largest data breaches in U.S. history. For three weeks during the 2013 Christmas shopping season, Target allowed sensitive customer financial and personal information to go totally unguarded, compromising the credit/debit card information for over 40 million accounts and personal information for over 70 million accounts.
