At least one Illinois resident has joined those suing Target after the retail giant disclosed hackers stole millions of customer accounts. Chicago-area woman Chandra McPherson is the named plaintiff in a class-action lawsuit filed this week in federal court in Chicago. Similar lawsuits have been filed in other states. The 31-page Chicago lawsuit seeks unspecified damages in one of the largest data breaches in US history. Last week, Target revealed that up to 40 million credit and debit accounts may have been stolen. Target says the breach involved U.S. store purchases between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.
