The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois has granted Neiman Marcus’ motion to dismiss a proposed class action lawsuit brought by four customers following a 2013 data breach that affected 350,000 customers’ payment card data and personally identifiable information.  The court found, in Remijas, et al., v. The Neiman Marcus Group, LLC, that the plaintiffs’ allegations of an increased risk of fraudulent charges and identity theft were insufficient to establish standing under Article III.  The court’s narrow view of standing is in line with other court decisions applying the Supreme Court’s "certainly impending" harm threshold set forth in Clapper v. Amnesty International USA, but is in some tension with a contrary ruling of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in the Adobe breach suit.
