Months after the Equifax data breach, consumers are taking the Atlanta-based company to small claims court — and winning.

A librarian from Vermont took the credit-reporting agency to court shortly after the massive hack was disclosed.

West sued Equifax for nearly $5,000, but the judge agreed to give her $690 ($90 of which was for court fees), Krebs reports.

He said that although he had a business interest (his company was offering to pay the court fees for small claims litigants on a contingency basis) he was also acting as a duped consumer.

“I also filed my own lawsuit against Equifax, half expecting to have my case dismissed, and half expecting Equifax to not even show up.

New York Attorney General Sues Trump Foundation After 2-Year Investigation

Authored by

The New York State attorney general’s office filed a scathingly worded lawsuit on Thursday taking aim at the Donald J. Trump Foundation, accusing the charity and the Trump family of sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign.

The lawsuit, which seeks to dissolve the foundation and bar President Trump and three of his children from serving on nonprofit organizations, was an extraordinary rebuke of a sitting president.

The attorney general also sent referral letters to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission for possible further action, adding to Mr. Trump’s extensive legal challenges. »
