The Black-eyed Pea parent, Paymentech go to court over handling of data breach
Danielle Abril reports:
The parent company of The Black-eyed Pea and Paymentech are caught up in a 2-year-old legal battle over a data breach that allegedly occurred three years ago.
Oddly, the lawsuit, filed with the 68th District Court in Dallas County, says very little about the data breach and neither company seems to have released any public announcement regarding the breach that, according to the lawsuit, affected customer payment cards.
Restaurants Acquisition I LLC, owner of The Black-eyed Pea, filed a lawsuit against Dallas-based Paymentech LP, part of JPMorgan Chase asking for a temporary restraining order, temporary injunction and permanent injunction. The restaurant company, which operates 30 Black-eyed Peas in Texas, claims that in 2013, Paymentech unlawfully took $248,405 from its accounts receivable related to a data breach incident dating back to 2012.
