Declan,

Today plaintiffs' filed a First Amended Complaint ("FAC") in the case
against Cardsystems, Visa, MasterCard, Merrick Bank, and others. The FAC
alleges that defendants were negligent in the security of consumer
credit card data which led to the data being hacked and compromised.

It is alleged in the First Amended Complaint that, on information and
belief, defendants knew or should have known that Cardsystems failed
multiple security audits, did not comply with credit card data security
standards during the past year, and defendants continued to allow them
to process consumer credit card transactions. The plaintiffs are now
seeking money damages. The First Amended Complaint can be found here:
