Ohio AG sues DSW over privacy breach
Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro has sued Designer Shoe Warehouse ("DSW") in a declaratory judgment action related to the theft of DSW's customer's personal information. The lawsuit (PDF) claims that DSW's "failure to notify each and every consumer who had personal information stolen from [DSW's] custody and control constitutes an unfair and deceptive act or practice in violation of the Consumer Sales Practices Act, R.C. 1345.02(A)." The lawsuit asks the court to order DSW to notify each and every consumer who had personal information stolen from DSW's custody and control.This reminds me. The soles of my loafers are in sad shape. I need to get to DSW to buy a new pair. Maybe I'll pay with cash!
