Another credit union league has joined CUNA's lawsuit against Equifax, bringing the number of league plaintiffs in the suit up to five. 

In a press release out today, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates announced that its board of directors voted during a special meeting to become a plaintiff in the suit CUNA filed against Equifax on October 4. That suit claims financial institutions have suffered and will continue to suffer financial losses and increased data security risks as a result of the credit bureau's recent massive data breach. 

The Credit Union Association of New Mexico, the California-Nevada Credit Union League and the Michigan Credit Union League joined the suit earlier this month. The Illinois Credit Union League announced earlier this week that it is now a plaintiff in the suit as well.
