Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Wilderness Sports Warehouse, LLC, d/b/a Tackle Warehouse; Running Warehouse, LLC; Sports Warehouse, Inc., d/b/a Tennis Warehouse; & Skate Warehouse, LLC
On January 11, 2022, a class action lawsuit was filed in United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia against the aforementioned online retailers for their alleged failure to properly secure and safeguard highly-valuable, protected Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”), including, without limitation, names, addresses, credit card and debit card numbers, expiration dates, and CV codes; alleged failure to comply with industry standards to protect information systems that contain PII; and alleged failure to provide adequate and prompt notice to Plaintiff and other Class Members that their PII had been accessed and compromised.
The complaint alleges that the named Defendants knew, or should have known, the importance of safeguarding the PII entrusted to Defendants and of the foreseeable consequences if its data security systems were breached. According to the complaint, the Defendants failed, however, to take adequate cyber security measures to prevent the data breach from occurring.
