On March 8, 2018, the Ninth Circuit overturned a Las Vegas federal court ruling and found that the threat of future harm related to identity theft was sufficient to allow the plaintiffs to have standing to sue. In this case, the plaintiffs were victims of identity theft after a 2012 data breach of the online retailer Zappos.com in which hackers stole names, account numbers, passwords, email addresses, and payment information. Some plaintiffs alleged that their information was used in actual identity theft or fraud after the breach while others did not experience those damages.
The court found that the allegations of increased risk of future identity theft posed a “credible threat of real and immediate harm.” Specifically, the court found that “the information taken in the data breach still gave hackers the means to commit fraud or identity theft.”
This case will assist Las Vegas and Henderson consumers by permitting their data breach related claims to move forward in the courts even if those consumers have not yet experienced identity theft or fraud as a result of the theft of their personal information.

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again.
