BOZEMAN - A class action lawsuit has been filed in federal court in Butte over the huge data breach at Equifax on July 29.
Equifax has our birthday and social security information. Nationwide, more than 140 million peoples' IDs were stolen in the security breach. In Montana, attorneys believe that number to be about 368,000, which is about 50 percent of people over the age of 18.
Beck, Amsden & Stalpes, PLLC, a law firm in Bozeman, is representing all Montanans in this lawsuit.
"So we filed this case to protect everybody in Montana and trying to do our best as Montanans to represent the interest of our neighbors and friends here and not let just some national class action lawyer run the show completely for us here," said Justin Stalpes a partner at Beck, Amsden, & Stalpes.
