LAW360: Phil Hines, Partner at Held & Hines, LLP Quoted in Class-Action Suit vs. GEICO and Berkshire Hathaway
- Posted on:
Philip Hines of Held & Hines LLP, counsel for the policyholders, told Law360 on Wednesday that his clients personal information has already been used to fraudulently apply for unemployment benefits and obtain credit cards.
“In the coming days, weeks and months, this information will most certainly be used for other nefarious purposes and be readily available on the dark web, injuring them personally and financially for years to come,” Hines said. “Had Geico been as diligent protecting our clients’ personal information as they are in collecting our clients’ premiums, this would have never happened.”
