15 Jun MGM Resorts International Data Breach – Quebec Class Action
Date of Initial Application: June 15, 2020
On August 3, 2022, the Superior Court of Quebec authorized a Quebec Data Breach Class Action against MGM Resorts International in this case. The authorization judgment is available on this page.
Lex Group Inc. has launched a national Canadian class action against MGM Resorts International regarding the data breach that involved the theft of the personal and/or financial information of approximately 10.6 million MGM Resorts International clients (guests), including clients in Canada. This data breach occurred on or before July 7, 2019 but was only publicly reported on by the media in February 2020.
MGM Resorts International is a Las Vegas (U.S.A.) based company primarily known for managing numerous resorts and hotels in Las Vegas but also in other locations of the United-States and around the world. MGM Resorts International informed a limited number of its clients affected by the data breach by email in August 2019 but sent notices to its Canadian clients only in June 2020.
The stolen information includes without limitation the MGM clients’ names, email addresses, postal address, telephone number and date of birth.
The data breach involves clients having stayed at one of MGM Resorts’ hotels, including but not limited to the following locations:
- MGM Grand (Las Vegas);
- Aria (Las Vegas);
- Bellagio (Las Vegas);
- Circus Circus (Las Vegas);
- Excalibur (Las Vegas);
- Luxor (Las Vegas);
- Mandalay Bay (Las Vegas);
- The Mirage (Las Vegas);
- New York-New York (Las Vegas);
- Park MGM (Las Vegas);
- Signature at MGM Grand (Las Vegas);
- MGM Grand Detroit (Detroit, Michigan);
- Beau Rivage (Biloxi, Mississippi);
- Gold Strike Tunica (Tunica, Mississippi);
- Borgata (Atlantic City, New Jersey);
- MGM National Harbor (Prince George’s County, Maryland);
- MGM Springfield (Springfield, Massachusetts).

Should you be defined as a member of the class, you may be entitled to compensation should the Court authorize and grant the class action on the merits, or should a settlement be reached (and approved by the Court).
