Robert A. Mosier, Sanders Phillips Grossman


On September 7, 2016, a federal class-action lawsuit was filed in Arizona on behalf of individuals whose personal information was compromised after Banner Health’s announcement on August 2, 2016, of a massive data breach. The data breach could be one of the most significant this year, having potentially exposed 3.7 million patients’ personal health information as well as some credit and debit card data.

Banner says the incident occurred on June 17, 2016, and the breach was discovered on July 13, 2016.

The potentially stolen information includes patient names, addresses, birth dates, physician names, dates of service, clinical information, health insurance information, social security numbers; claims and insurance information, employee benefit information; debit and credit cardholder names, numbers, expiration dates, and internal verification codes.

The suit, filed by Jane Reader of Pinal County, alleges “a failure to exercise reasonable care in protecting its member’s personal information, failed to employ security protocols to detect the unauthorized network activity, failed to provide timely and adequate notice of the data breach.”  It also claims economic damages as affected consumers have had to purchase credit monitoring systems.

A trial by jury has been sought in the matter.

U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, Case Number 2:16-cv-02994
