According to an article appearing in the Boston Globe, a class action lawsuit filed on January 29, 2007 in U.S. District Court in Boston accuses the company of negligence for failing to maintain adequate security of customer data and of not notifying the public of the breach for a month. The suit was originally brought on behalf of Paula G. Mace of Horner, WV, who had her debit card information stolen from T.J. Maxx's computer system.

The plaintiffs, represented by Stern, Shapiro, Weissberg & Garin of Boston, are seeking credit monitoring services and any damages incurred by affected customers.

T. J. Maxx has already said it does not intend to pay for credit monitoring services for victims, despite the fact that fraud against those with disclosed personal data has already been detected.
