LAS VEGAS (AP) — Online retailers and parent company are being sued in Kentucky by a Texas woman alleging that she was harmed by the release of personal account information.

Officials with Zappos in Nevada and Amazon in Seattle declined comment Wednesday on the lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Louisville, Ky.

It was filed hours after Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh (SHAY’) reported that customer names, phone numbers and email addresses may have been accessed in a hacker attack.

Attorney Mark Gray seeks class action status for plaintiff Theresa D. Stevens of Beaumont, Texas, and 24 million other customers for what Gray alleges was a violation of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Henderson, Nev.-based Zappos announced Monday it was contacting customers by email and urging them to change their passwords.
