Lawsuit filed against grocery chain over breach

Posted:

Belleville -- A Missouri-based supermarket chain faces a potential class-action lawsuit in Illinois related to a security breach affecting up to 2.4 million credit and debit cards of its customers.

 

St. Louis attorney Jeffrey Millar filed the lawsuit in St. Clair County on behalf of a man who shopped at a Schnucks store in Belleville during the time the company says customers' accounts may have been compromised.

 

Maryland Heights, Mo.-based Schnucks Markets has said the breach dated to December and came to light in March. Many customers have reported fraudulent charges, some in the thousands of dollars.

 

Millar's lawsuit questions why the problem wasn't made public quicker.

 

Schnucks spokeswoman Lori Willis says the company will fight the lawsuit that she says is without merit.
