Payment Card Attorney Encourages Credit Unions To Reject Home Depot Data Breach Settlement

In a conference call on Monday (Dec. 7) organized by MasterCard, credit unions and other financial institutions were encouraged to reject data breach settlement offers from Home Depot, arguing that the offers are too vague.

In a blog post from the Credit Union National Association that described that conference call, Joseph Guglielmo, lead counsel for financial institutions in the case, was quoted as making the key presentation. “Until Home Depot discloses all of the facts relating to its agreement with MasterCard, we recommend that financial institutions reject any settlement that requires them to release their claims in court and does not offer a significant reimbursement for their losses, beyond what they’re already entitled to,” Guglielmo was quoted as saying.
