   WASHINGTON, DC (AP) - Illinois' attorney general is planning to testify in Washington on data breaches.
   Lisa Madigan's office notes the Chicago Democrat is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning before a House committee.
   The attorney general plans to speak about a growing number of data breaches that she says have affected consumers nationwide and prompted multiple investigations in her offices about how businesses are protecting consumers. A data breach is the sharing of information that is supposed to be secure and confidential.
   Madigan says she plans to detail the role Illinois and other states have in responding to data breaches and the steps the private sector and government can take to prevent them.

   A settlement may be near in the class action lawsuit against Schnucks supermarkets stemming from a security breach that compromised more than 2 million customer credit and debit cards.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the judge will decide in the coming weeks if the deal Schnucks has agreed to is satisfactory.  

   But an attorney pursuing a federal lawsuit over the matter is asking the court to throw out the settlement, claiming it's unfair because proper discover hasn't been done and the full scope of the damages to Schnucks customers isn't known.  Attorney's involved in the local case deny that.

   Hackers breached the grocery chain's security between December 2012 and March 2013.
