marriot leaves customers’ information exposed
The Marriott hotel chain operates more than 6,700 properties. Marriott operates and franchises hotels and licenses vacation ownership resorts all around the world. The company is headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland.
It has been alleged that on November 30th, Marriott International announced that hackers have had access to the reservation systems of many of its hotel chains for the past four years, and had stolen the personal data of up to 500 million guests. The breach hit customers who made reservations for the Marriott-owned Starwood hotel brands from 2014 to September 2018. The properties include Sheraton, Westin, W Hotels, St. Regis, Four Points, Aloft, Le Meridien, Tribute, Design Hotels, Element and the Luxury Collection. It has been further alleged that Marriott failed to take adequate and reasonable measures to secure customer PII collected in transactions and stored on its databases.
Plaintiff Robert G. Reynolds brings this class action seeking to represent a class of all persons whose personal information was compromised as a result of the data breach disclosed by Marriott on November 30, 2018.
Our class action lawsuit stems from Defendant’s failure to implement processes that would detect a breach of their security systems in a timely manner and to timely act upon warnings and alerts, including those generated by their own security systems.
The lawsuit is styled: Reynolds v. Marriott International, Inc., United States District Court District of Maryland.A copy of the Class Action Complaint can be found here.
