Heartland Data Breach Suits Folded into One

Kara Reeder

Sixteen separate class-action lawsuits against Heartland Payment Systems have been consolidated into one, reports Computerworld. The complaints stem from a massive data breach in January.


The lawsuit alleges that Heartland either negligently or deliberately misrepresented the facts, and seeks compensation for the costs that the financial institutions say they have had to bear in notifying customers and in reissuing new cards.


Last month, Albert Gonzalez pleaded guilty to being the mastermind behind the breaches at Heartland Payment Systems, Hannaford Bros. and the 2005 data breach at T. J. Maxx stores.
