Luxottica Data Breach Class Action
On January 12, 2021, Federal District Court Judge Michael Barrett of the Southern District of Ohio tapped Jeffrey Goldenberg of Goldenberg Schneider to serve as Co-Interim Liaison Counsel in the consolidated multistate class action, In re Luxottica of America, Inc. Data Security Breach Litigation, S.D. Ohio 1:20-cv-00908-MRB. This litigation arises out of Luxottica’s alleged failure to exercise reasonable care to safeguard Plaintiffs’ and absent class members’ personally identifiable information, including their protected health information. Despite the heightened risk for data breach vulnerabilities as a health care provider, plaintiffs allege Luxottica did not have appropriate measures in place to protect against a breach. As a result, on or around August 5, 2020, Luxottica experienced a data breach that allowed unauthorized persons to access hundreds of thousands of patients’ personal information, including health insurance information, social security numbers, and medical conditions and history. Luxottica became aware of the breach on August 9, 2020, but did not inform its patients about the breach until October 28, 2020.
If you or anyone you know received a notification from Luxottica about this breach and would like additional information about your legal rights, we would be pleased to discuss the matter with you.
