Case Name
Remijas, Frank, Farnoush and Kao v. The Neiman Marcus Group, LLC. Case No. 1:14-CV-01735 (N.D. Ill.) United States District Court, Northern District of Illinois
Case Summary
In January 2014, Neiman Marcus announced that it has experienced a cybersecurity intrusion that caused the potential compromise of the Payment Card (debit card or credit card) information of certain of its customers who used Payment Cards to make purchases at certain stores owned by Neiman Marcus (“the Cybersecurity Incident”). The Action was filed after Neiman Marcus’s announcement of the Cybersecurity Incident. In the Action, Plaintiffs allege negligence, breach of implied contract, unjust enrichment, violation of state unfair business practices statutes, invasion of privacy, and violation of state data breach acts. The Malware operated in some (but not all) NMG Stores between July 16, 2013 and October 30, 2013 (“the Malware Period”) and never operated in any restaurants owned by Neiman Marcus. Also the Malware did not operate in affected stores during each day of the Malware Period, but instead operated on dates that varied from store to store, and often only operated during part of the time that each store was open for business. From July 16, 2013 to January 10, 2014, approximately 2,187,773 different Payment Card accounts were used at NMG Stores. Out of these approximately 2,187,773 different Payment Card accounts, approximately 370,385 Payment Card accounts were used at an NMG Store during a time when the Malware was operating in that store. The remaining approximately 1,817,388 Payment Card accounts were not exposed to the Malware at any time and were not compromised as a result of the Cybersecurity Incident. The Parties now agree to settle the Action in its entirety, without any admission of liability by Neiman Marcus. The Parties intend this Agreement to bind Settlement Class Representatives, Neiman Marcus, and all Settlement Class Members who do not timely and properly exclude themselves from the Settlement.

    ADMIN – Hi Mrs. Billy,

    This is not the proper way to file a claim. Please use the links provided.

  10. Pk says:

    I also could not fill out the online form on 22august. The claim form at the website link I was sent via email (with my claim and confirmation numbers) says only purchases between July and October qualify, so I didn’t list my additional purchase(s) prior to 10 January 2014. Who’s scamming whom?

    ADMIN – Hi PK

    Why does everything have to be a scam? Could it be that the website was simply down due to technical problems?

  18. R says:

    I have copies of my statements providing all dates with purchases. However, the claim form only allows 3 boxes for information. What if I have more than 3? Where should I submit the others or which ones should I include/exclude if I can only submit the three the form allows?

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, R. Sorry, but your comment came in two & a half years too late. The Claims deadline expired in January 2018. Also, even if we wanted to help you, we couldn’t. We’re just a class action newspaper — not the Claims Administrator of this case. Please see the latest updates on this case here:
