More than 60 Named Plaintiffs in Home Depot Class Action Suit
Friday, May 29, 2015 6:40 AM

A consolidated class action complaint in the lawsuit against Home Depot was filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia and now includes more than 60 named plaintiffs, including Credit Union National Association and Cornerstone Credit Union League.

U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Thrash Jr. moved the deadline for credit unions and other stakeholders to decide to become named plaintiffs to Wednesday from May 15.

CUNA, state credit union leagues, and individual credit unions and banks have signed on to the complaint, which is in response to the September 2014 data breach at the home improvement retailer.

Atlanta-based Home Depot acknowledged that 56 million credit and debit cards were compromised through the breach that has cost credit unions alone nearly $60 million, according to data compiled by CUNA.

The suit will seek monetary recovery and injunctive relief.
