Served on a team that represented Recall Total Information Management, Inc., a major document and data storage provider, in defending claims for indemnity by the owner of computer tapes containing private data regarding hundreds of thousands of employees that were stolen as a result of the negligence of a subcontractor hired to transport the tapes. The owner demanded millions of dollars from our client to indemnify against the costs incurred in notifying the persons affected about the loss of their private data and in providing credit monitoring to persons who requested it. In addition, the team participated in efforts to obtain insurance coverage for the loss from our client's general liability carrier. The claims of the customer and claims for recovery of insurance proceeds were resolved by a settlement that reserved the rights of Recall to pursue claims against its subcontractor and its subcontractor's insurers for the losses incurred.
