Hausfeld represents several plaintiffs in a putative class action against Clearview AI filed in the Southern District of New York. Hausfeld has asserted claims on behalf of our clients and a putative class (and subclasses) for violations of the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (“BIPA”), which prohibits a private entity broadly from possessing and selling a person’s biometric information without first informing and receiving permission to do so.
Hausfeld serves as Court-appointed Interim Co-Lead Counsel for a proposed class of financial institutions in In re Wawa, Inc. Data Security Litigation, pending in the District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania before the Honorable Gene E.K. Pratter.
Hausfeld serves on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the Consumer Track in In re: Equifax, Inc. Customer Data Security Breach Litigation, where over 145 million U.S. consumers had their personal information compromised as a result of one of the largest cyberattacks and data breaches ever.
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.
