Update on OPM Data Breach Lawsuit

United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) logoOn June 3, NTEU amended its lawsuit against the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) arising out of the data breaches that OPM announced last June. NTEU amended its complaint to add an additional individual plaintiff and to include information that has been made available since the filing of the original complaint. NTEU’s lawsuit continues to allege a single claim: a breach of NTEU members’ constitutional right to informational privacy. And it continues to request the same relief, which includes lifetime credit monitoring and identity theft protection for any NTEU member who received a notice concerning either of the breaches that OPM announced last June. You can find a copy of the amended complaint, as well as periodic updates on the lawsuit, on  NTEU’s website.

I will continue to keep you posted on this important litigation.
