Partner Alysa Hutnik
was quoted in a BankInfoSecurity
article titled “Bank Vs. Customer: War of Words Heats Up.” The article discussed the dispute between Comerica Bank and Experi-Metal Inc., which sued the bank last December, claiming that the bank exposed its customers to phishing attacks.
Alysa noted the issues at this point in the case focus less on what is reasonable security, and more on legal procedural issues and whether there was sufficiently clear notice of updates to the contractual agreement. How the court decides those issues will ultimately determine whether there is closer examination on the issue of whether the bank's security safeguards were in fact reasonable, Alysa says.
