Enslin v. The Coca-Cola Company

United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
136 F.Supp.3d 654 (2015)


Facts

Shane Enslin (plaintiff) worked for a company that was eventually acquired by The Coca-Cola Company (Coca-Cola) (defendant). As a condition of Enslin’s employment, he was required to provide certain personal information, including his social security number, bank account information, and driver’s license number. In exchange for this information, Enslin’s employer promised to keep the information secure. However, Enslin’s personal information (as well as the personal information of many other employees) was saved in an unencrypted format on multiple laptops that were later stolen from Coca-Cola. Following the thefts, Enslin suffered from unauthorized uses of his identity and bank information that caused him damages. Enslin sued Coca-Cola for breaching the agreement to keep his personal information secure. In this lawsuit, Enslin claimed that Coca-Cola had been unjustly enriched by choosing to save money instead of protecting its employees’ personal information. Enslin sought the disgorgement of Coca-Cola’s unjust enrichment as restitution damages. Coca-Cola moved to dismiss Enslin’s restitution claim as an invalid type of damages in a breach-of-contract action.
