CAPE GIRARDEAU — A customer has filed a class-action lawsuit against Exxon Mobil Corporation, Reeves Boomland Inc. and Bi-State Southern Oil Company for alleged negligence.
Michael Coleman filed the complaint on July 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Southeastern Division, alleging that the defendants willfully violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA).
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has suffered a heightened risk of identity theft and potential exposure of his private information. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly providing him with an electronically printed receipt that included the first six digits and the last four digits of his credit card number in violation of FACTA.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks an order declaring this action as a proper class-action suit, award for statutory damages of $1,000 per violation, putative damages, costs and attorneys' fees and any further relief the court may deem just and proper. He is represented by Anthony LaCroix of LaCroix Law Firm LLC in Kansas City and James L. Davidson of Greenwald Davidson PLLC in Boca Raton, Fla.
