All of the 33 lawsuits filed against Target Corporation from the massive data breach will be heard in Minnesota following an order from the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation.

This centralization will eliminate duplicative discovery, prevent inconsistent pre-trial rulings, and conserve the resources of the parties and the judiciary, according to the transfer order.

U.S. District Judge Paul Magnuson in Minnesota will hear each of the 33 cases and any others that should arise.
