NEW BEDFORD — Attorney Carlin J. Phillips bristled when I asked him whether attorneys suing Target stores are going to be regarded as opportunistic ambulance-chasers.

“I’ve heard this all the time,” he said. “It’s almost an ignorant view of how it works.”

Phillips, whose offices are in Dartmouth, is representing in federal court in Boston a South Easton woman, Meghan Derba, who is one of the estimated 40 million Target customers whose personal credit and debit card data was stolen by unidentified evil masterminds during the Christmas shopping season.

The data is now being sold on the black market for anywhere from $20 to $100 per account, according to various sources. Target is bringing in forensic computer experts, Congress is rumbling about investigations, and federal district courts across the land are seeing a flurry of class action lawsuits like this one.
