Report: Home Depot has until July to respond to data breach law suits


New York -- The Home Depot has been given until July to respond to allegations that its data breach occurred because the retailer did not meet its obligation to comply with security standards and to protect its customers' personal information, according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

At a hearing, U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Thrash gave Home Depot until July 1 and July 15, respectively, to respond to the allegations of consumers and financial institutions.

He also established two separate tracks for the litigation, the report noted, with one for consumers and a second for financial institutions. Consumers and financial institutions suing Home Depot have until April 1 and April 15, respectively, to file master complaints against the retailer.
