National class action lawsuit filed in Atlanta against Equifax

A national class action lawsuit filed against Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) claims that criminals have started using the information gleaned from July’s massive consumer data breach.

The Washington Post reports that a lawsuit, Allen et al v. Equifax, filed in Atlanta pulls together dozens of individual complaints from consumers in all 50 states plus Washington D.C., and “suggests that cybercriminals aren’t wasting time using the Social Security numbers, credit card accounts, driver’s license numbers and other sensitive personal information they siphoned out of the credit bureau’s reputedly secure databases on 145.5 million Americans,” writes columnist Kenneth R. Harney.

Harney reports that the suit intends to create a single giant class-action suit against the Atlanta-based credit reporting agency. Georgia resident Robert Huntis among the individuals reportedly apart of the lawsuit, claiming that multiple “unauthorized mortgages” have been applied for using his stolen information.

City plans 1,000-space parking garage with green roof for Grant Park near zoo

The city of Atlanta plans to build a 1,000-space, semi-underground parking garage with a “green roof” in Grant Park adjacent to Zoo Atlanta.

The city says the project will accommodate current and future parking demand, reduce traffic congestion and improve safety. The building’s “green roof” will have planted vegetation to reduce storm water run-off, improve air quality “and create an attractive outdoor green space for the neighborhood,” the city says.
