Judge Dismisses Suit Against Home Depot for Data Breach

A federal judge has dismissed a suit against The Home Depot that had been pegged to a widespread and high-profile data breach two years ago, according to the Daily Report. U.S. District Chief Judge Thomas Thrash, sitting in Atlanta, said company’s top management, as well as its board of directors did try to address the weaknesses in its online and data security, “even if the steps they took in hindsight proved to be inadequate,” the Daily Report said.
