Legal action by investors in the wake of high-profile data breaches has yielded mixed results in recent years, but the tide could be turning following last week’s news of a hack against consumer credit reporting agency Equifax. Senior securities reporter Carmen Germaine comes on the podcast to walk us through what Equifax may be facing. Also on this week’s show, we discuss a House-passed bill about regulating self-driving cars, the NFL’s legal battle with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, and a comedy duo facing legal trouble over their appearance on a Wisconsin morning show.
