Home Depot asks court to dismiss financial institutions’ lawsuit over data breach

David Allison reports that Home Depot is seeking dismissal of a lawsuit filed by financial institutions by arguing that the financial institutions haven’t demonstrated any concrete injury traceable to Home Depot:

Home Depot goes to on say that “No individual bank alleges any harm that it specifically incurred as a result of the Home Depot data breach, and the majority of the types of damage the banks seek to recover are expenses voluntarily incurred to protect against possible future harm.”

The home improvement giant adds that “the banks’ complaint should be dismissed because the banks have not stated a single actionable claim against Home Depot.”
