Neiman Marcus Wants Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit Killed

idRADAR reports that (no surprise) Neiman Marcus has moved to dismiss a potential class action lawsuit stemming from its recently disclosed data breach.

Unlike other lawsuits where lead plaintiffs haven’t even experienced any fraudulent use of their data, the plaintiff in this case had incurred fraudulent charges on her card – which she attributes to the Neiman Marcus breach. But because of the card issuer’s zero liability assurances, Neiman Marcus was able to argue in its motion to dismiss that she has not experienced any unreimbursed harm, and therefore has no standing.
