The fallout from Target's data breach continues to mount as multiple class-action lawsuits have been filed with more than $5 million in damages sought.

According to USA Today, two cases were filed in California and one in Oregon in response to the card information flooding the black market.

The attorneys general in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, South Dakota, and possibly others, have asked Target for information about the breach. This would mark the first step to a possible multi-state investigation.

Shares of Target Corp., based in Minneapolis, fell 1.5 percent to $61.57 on Monday morning. Target has said up to 40 million customers could be affected.
