Marriott is insisting that last year’s cyberattack did no harm to its hotel guests, not least of which because hackers cannot use stolen passport numbers.
In a motion filed on Monday, Marriott International Inc. sought to dismiss a consolidated consumer class action brought over the data breach, which compromised the personal information of 383 million guests of its Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide properties. Parroting the argument of other defendants in data breach cases, Marriott insisted that none of the named plaintiffs in the case suffered harm, which is required to establish standing to sue in federal court.
