MIAMI — The law firm of Berger Singerman has filed a lawsuit (Case # 12-01595CA24) on behalf Rebecca Illingworth against Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne Resort for disclosing confidential information of Illingworth, who had been a guest at the resort in March 2011.
Illingworth and her minor son stayed at the Key Biscayne Ritz-Carlton during the Sony Ericsson Tennis Tournament in Key Biscayne running from March 21-24, 2011. The lawsuit contends that Illingworth’s former husband contacted Marriott Hotels, the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne’s parent company, and obtained a copy of Illingworth’s and her minor child’s billing folio. According to court documents her former husband used the information in a pending custody dispute.
The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne’s reservation policy states that the Ritz-Carlton, and its parent, Marriott Hotels, do not permit the sale or transfer of personally identifiable information to entities outside the Marriott family of companies and hotels.
