Court Largely Denies Motion to Dismiss Data Breach Lawsuit Against Rutter’s
On January 5, 2021, the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania largely denied Rutters’ motion to dismiss Plaintiffs’ Amended Class Action Complaint. The lawsuit relates to a massive data breach suffered at Rutter’s—a company that operates approximately 72 convenience stores and gas stations in Central Pennsylvania—that allegedly exposed the sensitive payment card information of millions of Rutter’s customers.
Although the Court dismissed two of the Plaintiffs and the negligence per se and statutory claims, it found that Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint stated viable claims for negligence, implied contract, and unjust enrichment. The Court’s decision on the motion to dismiss is available here.
