Eddie Bauer files motion to dismiss Veridian class action over security breach claims

Russell Boniface reports:

On June 15, Eddie Bauer filed a motion to dismiss a class action lawsuit by Veridian Credit Union claiming a data breach at the retail chain was caused by a lack of adequate security measures.


In its motion to dismiss the suit, Eddie Bauer claims that Veridian has failed to allege sufficient facts to support its claims, specifically any facts establishing a relationship between Eddie Bauer and those responsible for the data breach.

In addition, Eddie Bauer claims that Veridian filed the suit in Washington in an effort to avoid unfavorable Iowa negligence law, and that application of Washington’s law to non-residents is inappropriate.
