CUNA has officially joined a class action lawsuit against Wendy’s, the result of a data breach suffered by the fast food restaurant as early as fall 2015.
A handful of cases were brought against Wendy’s, all similarly alleging that Wendy’s failed to comply with industry standards to protect payment card and customer data. The court has agreed it is reasonable to consolidate those actions into a single suit.
CUNA will join the consolidated action as the national trade association representing credit unions.
The Ohio-based Wendy’s first reported a suspected breach in February, as it discovered unauthorized software in its payment processing computers, affecting as many as 6,000 locations.
Credit unions and leagues interested in more information can e-mail DataBreachLawsuit@cuna.coop to communicate with counsel about their particular situation, and the course of all available options for recovery.
