SAN DIEGO (Legal Newsline) - A California man is suing Bose, alleging it wrongfully records personal identification information at point-of-sale.
Patrick Keegan, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class action lawsuit Jan. 29 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Bose Corporation, alleging violations of California's Song-Beverly Credit Card Act.
According to the complaint, Bose currently utilizes a policy whereby its cashiers request and record credit card numbers and personal identification information from customers who use credit cards, including Keegan, at point-of-sale. The suit says Bose's employees record customer information including driver's licenses, addresses and telephone numbers, in violation of the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act, which was enacted to address consumer privacy concerns.
Keegan and others in the class seek statutory penalties, $250 per each primary violation, $1,000 per each subsequent violation, interests, attorney fees and costs of the suit. They are represented by attorneys E. Elliot Adler, Brittany S. Zummer and Amanda J. Wiesner of Adler Law Group in San Diego.
