Texas Prisons Privacy Case
We served as co-lead counsel in the trail-blazing consumer privacy case Dennis v. Metromail Corp. The complaint charged that Metromail contracted to have maximum security Texas prisoners “key” personal information obtained from shopping questionnaires.
As a result, the lead plaintiff received an extremely offensive, sexually explicit letter from a convicted sexual offender. The firm’s investigation found that the personal information of almost two million Americans was processed using maximum security prisoners. The landmark settlement made available $15 million and significant non-monetary relief.
