Lawsuits Piling up over Target Data Breach

Days after acknowledging a massive hacking of customer credit card data, Target is facing at least two dozen lawsuits, CNN Money reports. Customers from California, Oregon and Washington to Louisiana, Massachusetts and Rhode Island have filed would-be class actions in federal courts, alleging Target was negligent and did not protect their card information. The retailer announced Monday that the Department of Justice is investigating the security breach of about 40 million credit and debit card accounts, the Associate Press reports on WATE. Security experts say it is the second largest theft of card accounts in U.S. history.
