On July 12, 2017, three private American citizens filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The plaintiffs sought compensatory and punitive damages against the Trump Campaign alleging its participation in the Russian Email Hacking and in the decision to disseminate the information discovered. The complaint stated that part of the information released involved included the plaintiffs' private emails, social security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, and phone numbers. They argued that the defendant's alleged actions violated D.C. privacy law and 42 U.S.C. 1985(3) (conspiracy to intimidate lawful voters from giving support or advocacy to electors for president and to injure citizens in person or property on account of such support or advocacy). They further made tort claims alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Specifically, the plaintiffs include a former foreign service officer, a former staffer for the finance team of the Democratic National Party (DNC), and a lottery winner who gave away most of his winnings. All three plaintiffs donated to the DNC during the 2016 U.S. presidential election cycle and allegedly had their emails stolen by Russians who hacked the DNC’s electronic database. They were represented by the Protect Democracy Project, United to Protect Democracy, and a law professor at the University of Michigan Law School.

On September 26, 2017, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint adding additional factual allegations. On October 25, 2017, the defendants filed motions to dismiss.

On July 3, 2018, Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle granted defendants’ motions to dismiss, and dismissed plaintiffs’ amended complaint without prejudice. The court found that the plaintiffs failed to demonstrate that the court had the jurisdiction and was the appropriate venue for their claim. The case is now closed.
