Stueve Siegel Brings Suit Against Optometry Board for Failure to Secure Sensitive Data
Stueve Siegel Hanson represents optometrists across the country in a class action lawsuit against the National Board of Examiners in Optometry (NBEO) related to the breach of NBEO’s databases and subsequent use of that information to commit fraud. In July 2016, many optometrists across North America began learning that fraudulent Chase Amazon Visa credit cards were being opened in their names. Affected individuals had given detailed personal identifying information to NBEO, including Social Security numbers and dates of birth, to register for its exams, some more than 15 years ago. The suit alleges that NBEO was negligent in failing to secure or delete this personal information, and failed to timely notify victims of the breach.
