Class Action Defense following Russian Cybersecurity Attack on Resort
BGD successfully defended Blue Sky Resort and Blue Sky Casino in a nationwide class action arising from a data security breach. The client, known as French Lick Resort, is located in Southern Indiana. The data security breach involved criminals out of Russia who had installed “scraper” malware that obtained the credit card information from some, but not all, of the resort’s customers during a certain period of time. BGD worked closely with the client to offer free credit-monitoring service to impacted customers as part of the breach notification process. BGD obtained dismissal of the lawsuit in April 2016.
