Judge Says Customers Can Sue Target Over Data Breach

Target’s massive data breach from late 2013 continues to haunt the retailer.

On Friday, a Minnesota judge ruled that consumers could sue Target for the data breach, which compromised the personal financial information of the retail chain’s customers.

According to Reuters, U.S. District Court Judge Paul Magnuson rejected Target’s assertion that customers could not sue because they could not establish any injury.

Target officials declined to comment on the ruling. In the breach, some 40 million credit cards were compromised along with personal information from as many as 110 million individuals.
