MADISON, WI (AP) - A class-action lawsuit against Target Corp. over last year's security breach has been filed by a Wausau bank and a Fitchburg man.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports that similar lawsuits have been filed in other states, but this is the first of its kind to be filed in Wisconsin.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Madison. The plaintiffs are seeking restitution for customers and compensation for banks that are re-issuing cards and monitoring bank accounts for fraud.
The breach gave hackers access to information credit and debit cards and personal data for about 70 million customers.
Target did not immediately respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
