On July 7, 2016, a federal court in the District of Minnesota dismissed derivative claims filed by Target shareholders against the company's executives and directors, stemming from the 2013 payment card breach that impacted up to 70 million Target customers. Target's motion to dismiss followed the release of a 91-page report prepared by a Special Litigation Committee (SLC) established by Target under a Minnesota law that permits companies to appoint special committees to review shareholder claims and submit recommendations regarding the pursuit of those claims. Over the course of its 21-month investigation, the SLC conducted 73 interviews, consulted with outside counsel and experts, and engaged in more than 100 meetings. In its final report, the SLC decided it was "not in Target's best interests to pursue derivative claims arising out of the 2013 data breach against the named officers and directors." In June, following the release of the final report, the plaintiffs stipulated to the dismissal of all shareholder claims. And this month, after the 30-day period for stakeholders to intervene had lapsed, the district court dismissed the shareholders' derivative claims without prejudice.
