Negligence

Saks Off 5th Store

The complaint for this class action claims that in the past five years, almost every major data breach at retail chain stores has involved malware on point of sale (POS) systems—yet retailers still do not take adequate precautions to vulnerable protect customer data. In this case, it was Saks & Company’s systems that were breached, and the issue is not only the breach but Saks’s failure to detect it or properly inform customers for nearly a year. 

Sonic Drive-In Sign

Sonic acknowledges that it experienced a data breach that exposed the PII, credit card numbers, and other information of approximately five million customers that could allow criminals to make fraudulent charges to their accounts. The complaint for this class action alleges that it was Sonic’s negligence that enabled the data breach. Other chains, such as Wendy’s and Chipotle, have experienced data breaches recently which the complaint alleges should have put Sonic on notice. However, the complaint alleges, the system Sonic was using was in fact thirty years old, and while the company was working to update it, some locations were still on the old system.

Nursing Home Room

This lawsuit is brought by Shirley Johnson for the neglect and wrongful death of her sister, Evon Williams, at Courtyard Rehabilitation and Health Center, a nursing home, where Williams lived from approximately March 2007 until her death on March 14, 2013. The complaint alleges that Williams suffered various injuries from the negligent care at Courtyard, including yeast infections, urinary tract infections, PEG (direct-to-stomach feeding) tube errors, medication errors, and dehydration necessitating multiple trips to the hospital, all of which accelerated the deterioration of her health and finally led to her death.
