Last week, a federal judge in Georgia ruled that the class action filed against Home Depot by the credit card companies could proceed. The judge stated that the card issuers’ allegations that Home Depot was negligent in its security processes prior to the data breach in 2014 had merit.

The card issuers are requesting reimbursement for the costs associated with reissuing millions of credit and debit cards and reimbursing card holders for fraudulent transactions.

Home Depot has already agreed to settle claims against it for the massive data breach that occurred in 2014, affecting up to 56 million debit and credit card holders for at least $19.5 million, and up to $28 million, including attorneys’ fees and costs.
