ROSEN LAW FIRM FILES CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST VTECH ELECTRONICS ARISING FROM DATA BREACH
New York, N.Y., December 4, 2015. The Rosen Law Firm, P.A. has filed a class action lawsuit against VTech Electronics North America, LLC (“VTech”) on behalf of consumers who purchased VTech devices and used VTech’s “Kid Connect” or “Learning Lodge” services. If you purchased an affected device, which includes, but is not limited to, all InnoTab tablets, such as the InnoTab 3, InnoTab 3S Plus, InnoTab 3S, InnoTab3S Plus and the InnoTab Max, and the Tote & Go Laptop, MobiGo, V.Reader, and ABC Learning Classroom toys, or were a user of the “Kid Connect,” Learning Lodge,” or “PlanetVTech” services, you may wish to participate in a class action lawsuit against VTech.
The Complaint was filed on December 3, 2015 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois on behalf of a resident of the state of Washington. If you live in a state other than Washington, you may end up not receiving any recovery from the current class action against VTech because the current class action contains only a plaintiff from Washington. The court may limit recovery only to those who reside in states in which there is a named plaintiff. To ensure that you are eligible to receive any recovery, should the action be successful, you may seek to become a plaintiff in the class action. This will also enhance the likelihood that all other affected consumers from the state in which you live are able to participate in any recovery.
The Complaint alleges VTech’s grossly inadequate information and network security oversight led to the disclosure of consumers’ sensitive personal information, including information about their children, to unauthorized third parties. The Complaint seeks relief on behalf of consumers not only for the disclosure of their personal information, but also for the harm caused by VTech’s deceptive consumer practices that caused consumers to purchase the affected Products without knowing of the inadequate security of the data solicited by Vtech from consumers. VTech has acknowledged that on November 14, 2015, the Learning Lodge and Kid Connect databases were hacked, resulting in the exposure of the personal information of approximately 11 million user accounts. This has further resulted in consumers being deprived the full use of the products that they purchased since beginning November 29, 2015, VTech suspended the Kid Connect and Learning Lodge services, along with a number of associated websites. VTech has admitted that its “Learning Lodge, Kid Connect and PlanetVTech databases were not as secure as they should have been,” and security researchers have noted the gross inadequacy of the measures VTech had in place.
The Rosen Law Firm seeks to represent affected customers residing in each of the 50 United States.
