Class action filed against Mercer University after more than 93K impacted by data breach, court records show

“Mercer University is facing a class action lawsuit for its alleged "failure to properly secure and safeguard" personal information for more than 93,000 individuals impacted by a data breach.“

“In a lawsuit filed with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Newnan Division on May 31, a "John Doe" accused the corporation of Mercer University of not taking proper precautions that led to the breach of thousands of people's personal and financial information. “

“Court documents allege that on April 5 a third-party gained access to students' information with the intent to sell it. The personal identifiable information (PII) could include social security numbers, passport numbers, driver's license numbers and financial account numbers, the lawsuit reads. “
