Ever since the first news of Equifax’s data breach broke, savvy plaintiff’s lawyers around the country have wasted no time in filing a myriad of class action lawsuits. Following Equifax’s disclosure on September 7, 2017 that it had been the target of a data security incident that resulted in the criminal unauthorized access of the personally identifiable information of approximately 143 million U.S. consumers, class action lawsuits, with the potential to earn plaintiffs’ lawyers massive attorney’s fees, have sprung up in every state. Over 340 class actions have been filed already. Itis not difficult to understand why.
