How To Sue Cisco — And Win!
Cisco Systems is an American technology conglomerate that develops, manufactures, and sells networking hardware, software, telecommunications equipment, and other technological services. The main purpose of Cisco is to build, accelerate and unify computing.
Cisco does not have a clean track record when it comes to patent, racial discrimination, and infringement, encountering multiple lawsuits throughout the years. Most recently, Cisco was accused of racial discrimination by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, resulting in a lawsuit that has set US legal precedent in terms of its ability to legally define caste-based discrimination.
Confronting legal issues as a Cisco consumer is common — suing Cisco is easy. With the help of DoNotPay, accessible in any web browser, an automated lawsuit is generated as quickly as needed! Find out more below.
Can You Sue Cisco?
As a user or employee of Cisco, you are entitled to file a small claims lawsuit if you can prove the following.
Cisco Leaked Personal Records
Cisco has come under fire for its mismanagement of customer records and small claims against the company typically relate to the breach of personal data and subsequent leak of information.
If your personal details have been violated in accordance with the Data Protection Act, you can sue. Keep in mind that in various states, the Data Protection Act varies. Below, find an overview of the Data Protection Act:
- All Fifty States Have Data Breach Notification Rules. All 50 states follow this: “Each covered entity and third-party agent shall implement and maintain reasonable security measures to protect sensitive personally identifying information against a breach of security.”
- Three States — Nevada, Maine, and California Have Privacy Laws in Effect.
|Maine||The law protects personally identifying information about a customer, including name, billing information, social security number, and billing address.
For example, Cisco releases your personal information in a data breach or unknowingly exposes your private details (bank account, card information)
|Nevada||“Covered information” or first and last name, any information collected through an internet website or online service
For example, Cisco reveals your name, date of birth, and other details that are intended to remain confidential
|California||In California, consumers can demand to see all of the information that a company has saved under their name, including a list of all third-party data recipients
For instance, any and all information that Cisco has on you is protected by California’s Data Breach Laws
Cisco Violated Patent Property
In the past, Cisco has been accused of violating patent property and is constantly undergoing legal battles with “patent trolls”. Patent trolls are those who “extract profits from U.S based companies” through inhibiting the inter-party review process, where the patent office reevaluates the validity of a patent and subjects it to litigation. This has been a legal loophole for the American System, but if you suspect your patent has been violated by Cisco, you are entitled to sue for damages in small claims court.
Cisco Aided an Institution that Harmed You
In recent years, Cisco has faced many lawsuits from human rights groups with respect to civil rights violations. For example, 11 individuals sued Cisco for corroborating personal data with the Chinese government, which led to emotional abuse, torture, and even extrajudicial killing.
Below, find some examples of some recent cases against Cisco; note that many of these cases involve class-action lawsuits. Although the crux of these cases are similar to a small claims court case, they are not specific to small claims.
- California sues Cisco for Alleged Discrimination: The State of California has sued Cisco on the grounds of discriminating against its workers based on caste. Although this lawsuit was dismissed in lieu of a settlement, it sets the standard and validates the reasoning behind why many decide to sue Cisco.
- Cisco Pays $2 billion for Infringing Cybersecurity Patents: Cisco infringed cybersecurity technology patents from Centripetal Networks, divulging secrets, and jeopardizing government contracts. The court also imposed a royalty of at least $168 million dollars.
