The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the country’s largest federal workers’ union, has filed a class-action lawsuit against the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in the wake of its massive data breach, The Hill reports. The AFGE sued the OPM Monday and specifically asked for a jury trial against OPM Director Katherine Archuleta and Chief Information Officer Donna Seymour. NationalJournal reports the OPM and the Department of Homeland Security held a conference call with several congressional offices to brief them on the ongoing breach investigation but didn’t disclose the full extent of the breach. An announcement on a second breach of OPM servers could come as early as next week, though the OPM hasn’t confirmed those reports.
