Governo Law Firm Attorneys Quoted on Payment Card Industry Data Breach Fines


Governo Law Firm attorneys David A. Goldman and Corey M. Dennis were recently quoted in an article entitled "Genesco's lawsuit against Visa over fines could have far-reaching effects," which was published in The Tennessean, the principal daily newspaper in Nashville, Tennessee.

The article discusses a recent case, Genesco v. Visa, which is the first direct lawsuit against a credit card company fighting back against fines assessed by credit card companies under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards ("PCI DSS"). The case, filed in Tennessee federal court, challenges $13.3 million in PCI data breach fines levied against Genesco, but also could have a broader impact on the assessment of PCI fines generally.
