Judge Advises Dismissal of CommonSpirit Breach Lawsuit

Contributed by: Drex DeFord
A federal judge has advised the dismissal of a lawsuit against the Catholic hospital chain CommonSpirit for a 2022 cyberattack and data breach affecting nearly 624,000 people, marking the second such dismissal related to this breach. Plaintiffs in these cases have struggled to establish standing, failing to demonstrate concrete harm resulting from the breach. This pattern follows a broader trend where health data breach lawsuits often falter on standing issues, despite some recent successes in similar cases against other entities. This situation highlights the challenges plaintiffs face in proving direct harm from data breaches, amid increasing litigation and substantial settlements in other instances of health data breaches.
