Rick is an energetic businessperson who encompasses sound business management and community involvement, qualities that are vital to our shareholders, customers, and communities that we serve.

Potts Law Firm Files Class Action for San Jacinto River Flooding Victims

Potts Law Firm Files Inverse Condemnation Case for All Residences and Businesses Impacted

HOUSTON, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Potts Law Firm, a Houston-based law firm, filed a class action on September 6, 2017, in the Harris County District Court seeking to represent all individuals and businesses recently affected by the San Jacinto River Authority's handling of "controlled release" of water from Lake Conroe on August 27, 2017. As a result of the release, it is estimated that thousands of homeowners and business owners' properties were flooded who had previously escaped flooding from Hurricane Harvey itself.

The lawsuit styled Thomas E. and Beth F. Ross, et.al. v. San Jacinto River Authority, et al., consists of two subclasses for (1) All Texas residential property owners who experienced flood waters at their property on or after Monday, August 28, 2017, in the area downstream of Lake Conroe affected by the rising waters of the San Jacinto River as a result of San Jacinto River Authority's decision to release water from Lake Conroe; and (2) All Texas commercial property owners who experienced flood waters at their property on or after Monday, August 28, 2017, in the area downstream of Lake Conroe affected by the rising waters of the San Jacinto River as a result of San Jacinto River Authority's decision to release water from Lake Conroe.

Plaintiffs owned property that was not flooding after Hurricane Harvey sat over Harris and Montgomery Counties on Saturday, August 26, 2017 and Sunday, August 27, 2017, but only began flooding on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 when the San Jacinto River Authority released water from Lake Conroe. After the release, Plaintiffs' property took on several feet of flood water. The suit seeks damages for the government's intentional taking of properties by flooding and seeks recovery for the repair costs to such properties, diminution in value of the properties, lost income or business income to the properties' owners, and any consequential loss of the flooding. Inverse condemnation occurs when the government takes private property but fails to pay the compensation required by Section 17, Article 1 of the Texas Constitution. Similar lawsuits were filed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and a class action was certified by the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

"In the devastating aftermath of the flooding, Potts Law Firm stands ready to support our clients, our employees, and our community at this most challenging time", said Derek H. Potts, National Managing Partner in Houston. "This case is particularly important to us since it directly impacted so many friends, neighbors, and family members."

Widely recognized for their expertise in complex litigation and trials, Potts Law Firm has obtained record-setting verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients in state and federal courts across the country. The attorneys with Potts Law Firm are dedicated to fighting for the rights of victims of flood and wind catastrophes.

Equifax Announces Cybersecurity Incident Involving Consumer Information

No Evidence of Unauthorized Access to Core Consumer or Commercial Credit Reporting DatabasesCompany to Offer Free Identity Theft Protection and Credit File Monitoring to All U.S. Consumers

ATLANTA, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) today announced a cybersecurity incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. Criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. Based on the company's investigation, the unauthorized access occurred from mid-May through July 2017.  The company has found no evidence of unauthorized activity on Equifax's core consumer or commercial credit reporting databases.

The information accessed primarily includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers.  In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed.  As part of its investigation of this application vulnerability, Equifax also identified unauthorized access to limited personal information for certain UK and Canadian residents. Equifax will work with UK and Canadian regulators to determine appropriate next steps.  The company has found no evidence that personal information of consumers in any other country has been impacted.  

Equifax discovered the unauthorized access on July 29 of this year and acted immediately to stop the intrusion. The company promptly engaged a leading, independent cybersecurity firm that has been conducting a comprehensive forensic review to determine the scope of the intrusion, including the specific data impacted. Equifax also reported the criminal access to law enforcement and continues to work with authorities.  While the company's investigation is substantially complete, it remains ongoing and is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.    

"This is clearly a disappointing event for our company, and one that strikes at the heart of who we are and what we do. I apologize to consumers and our business customers for the concern and frustration this causes," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard F. Smith. "We pride ourselves on being a leader in managing and protecting data, and we are conducting a thorough review of our overall security operations.  We also are focused on consumer protection and have developed a comprehensive portfolio of services to support all U.S. consumers, regardless of whether they were impacted by this incident."

Equifax has established a dedicated website, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com, to help consumers determine if their information has been potentially impacted and to sign up for credit file monitoring and identity theft protection. The offering, called TrustedID Premier, includes 3-Bureau credit monitoring of Equifax, Experian and TransUnion credit reports; copies of Equifax credit reports; the ability to lock and unlock Equifax credit reports; identity theft insurance; and Internet scanning for Social Security numbers - all complimentary to U.S. consumers for one year. The website also provides additional information on steps consumers can take to protect their personal information. Equifax recommends that consumers with additional questions visit www.equifaxsecurity2017.com or contact a dedicated call center at 866-447-7559, which the company set up to assist consumers. The call center is open every day (including weekends) from 7:00 a.m.1:00 a.m. Eastern time.

In addition to the website, Equifax will send direct mail notices to consumers whose credit card numbers or dispute documents with personal identifying information were impacted. Equifax also is in the process of contacting U.S. state and federal regulators and has sent written notifications to all U.S. state attorneys general, which includes Equifax contact information for regulator inquiries.

Equifax has engaged a leading, independent cybersecurity firm to conduct an assessment and provide recommendations on steps that can be taken to help prevent this type of incident from happening again.

CEO Smith said, "I've told our entire team that our goal can't be simply to fix the problem and move on.  Confronting cybersecurity risks is a daily fight.  While we've made significant investments in data security, we recognize we must do more.  And we will."
