Attorney General Paxton Objects to Sale of Texans’ Personal Data in RadioShack Bankruptcy Case

AUSTIN, March 26, 2015 - Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed an objection to the sale of the personally identifiable information of 117 million RadioShack customers. General Paxton released the following statement:

“The protection of private, sensitive and personally identifiable information is of growing importance to the people of Texas and to people around the nation. RadioShack gave customers explicit assurances it would not sell their personal information, and that company’s attempts to sell this data would not only be a direct violation of the terms of its own privacy policies, but also a clear violation of Texas law. We will vigorously fight to protect consumers’ personally identifiable information.”

Supporting this effort are Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
