Nordstrom lawsuit

Nordstrom lawsuit

Nordstrom is being sued for the way it allegedly mishandles customer information.

The class action lawsuit accuses the department store of receiving customer email addresses and filling up their inboxes with promotional emails.

In the suit, a disgruntled shopper says the cashier asked for his email so the store could send him an electronic receipt. 

But along with the receipt, he says he is also getting almost-daily emails from Nordstrom and other retailers, leading him to think Nordstrom shared or sold his email address without his permission.

Nordstrom moved for dismissal, but a U.S. District Judge is allowing the case to proceed.
