CoreLogic Sued For Violating NJ Judicial Protections Law : Violation Allegations

The complaint alleges that CoreLogic violated Daniel’s Law, enacted following the tragic death of U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas’ son in a 2020 home invasion. This law prohibits the disclosure of addresses where protected individuals, such as judges, prosecutors, and their families, currently reside.

Class Action Details

CoreLogic, based in California, defended its move to transfer the case to federal court, citing the number of potential claimants and the compensation sought. The proposed class, represented by Atlas Data Privacy Corporation, asserts that CoreLogic ignored their requests to remove addresses from its database, which permits site visitors to access sensitive information, including phone numbers and individuals linked to a particular location.

Seeking Justice

The proposed class seeks a court order to prevent CoreLogic from disclosing members’ personal information, alongside damages of at least $1,000 per violation, attorney fees, costs, and additional injunctive relief related to CoreLogic’s compliance with Daniel’s Law.
