LYNCH, Chief Judge
. Plaintiffs appeal from the dismissalof their Maine state law claims arising out of the unauthorized useof their credit and debit card data after hackers breached theelectronic payment processing system of defendant HannafordBrothers Co., where plaintiffs had shopped for groceries and usedthose cards.The district court determined that plaintiffs failed tostate a claim under Maine law for breach of fiduciary duty, breachof implied warranty, strict liability, and failure to notifycustomers of the data breach. Although the district courtconcluded that the plaintiffs adequately alleged breach of impliedcontract, negligence, and violation of the unfair practices portionof the Maine Unfair Trade Practices Act (UTPA), the district courtdismissed those claims because it determined the plaintiffs'alleged injuries were too unforeseeable and speculative to becognizable under Maine law. In re Hannaford Bros. Co. CustomerData Sec. Breach Litig., 613 F. Supp. 2d 108 (D. Me. 2009).We affirm in part and reverse in part. We affirm thedistrict court's dismissal of all claims other than the plaintiffs'negligence and implied contract claims. We reverse the districtcourt's dismissal of the plaintiffs' negligence and impliedcontract claims as to certain categories of alleged damages becauseplaintiffs' reasonably foreseeable mitigation costs constitute acognizable harm under Maine law.-2-
