Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) Files Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint Related to the Widely Publicized ComplyRight, Inc. Data Breach
On September 10, 2018, CSK&D and its co-counsel filed a consolidated amended class action complaint against ComplyRight, Inc., for claims stemming from the data breach that it suffered from April 20, 2018 until May 22, 2018.
According to the consolidated amended complaint, filed in federal court in the Northern District of Illinois, ComplyRight sent letters to Plaintiffs and many others around the country informing them that their Personal Information—including but not limited to their names, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, and Social Security numbers—was accessed and viewed by unauthorized individuals while being maintained on ComplyRight’s website. The letter warned recipient that their Personal Information “was accessed and/or viewed” and “may have been downloaded or otherwise acquired by an unauthorized user.” The letter admits the Data Breach occurred from April 20, 2018 to May 22, 2018, but it may have gone on much longer, and it may have exposed more information than enumerated in the letter.
