Minnesota Credit Union Network to join Lawsuit Against Equifax, Holding Conference Call
Last week, the Minnesota Credit Union Network announced it is joining the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and other state credit union associations and leagues in suing Equifax in the wake of its recent data breach.
The Equifax data breach has impacted at least 143 million consumers, compromising not only payment cards, but how credit is extended. The Equifax breach could completely change the credit union industry’s ability to rely on consumer data for authentication.
“Credit unions put their members’ interests first. We want to ensure that Minnesota’s credit unions, and their members, have a strong voice in these proceedings,” said MnCUN President & CEO Mark Cummins, “Equifax needs to be held accountable for exposing social security numbers, birthdates and other personal information.”
MnCUN has retained Karen Riebel Hanson of Lockridge Grindal Nauen P.L.L.P., and other attorneys representing the Credit Union National Association, as its counsel.
Along with CUNA, MnCUN joins several state credit union associations in the Oct. 4 lawsuit.
MnCUN will be hosting a conference call on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 9 a.m. to discuss their involvement in the Equifax lawsuit and answer questions. Details to call in to the conference call are available online.
