Court Largely Denies Motion to Dismiss Data Security Lawsuit Against Inmediata

On November 19, 2020, the United States District Court for the Southern District of California largely denied Inmediata Health Group’s motion to dismiss Plaintiffs’ Amended Complaint.  The lawsuit relates to a data security incident where an IT misconfiguration resulted in the “unauthorized access/disclosure” of highly sensitive medical and personal information of as many as 1.56 million individuals.

Although the Court dismissed Plaintiffs’ unjust enrichment claim and one state statutory claim, it found Plaintiffs had standing and had stated viable claims for negligence, breach of contract, and violations of several state privacy statutes. The Court’s decision allows this case to proceed into discovery. The Court’s decision on the motion to dismiss is available here.
