1. You can sue the bank for damages. You would have a cause of action for breach of confidence, breach of privacy, negligence, breach of duty and breach of statutory duty under the Data Protection Acts. Be aware that damages for this type of case are quite high, particularly if you can show some consequential loss resulting from the unlawful disclosure. So, once you issue legal proceedings, you should immediately issue a Notice for Discovery to find out to whom was the information disclosed as there may be further consequential loss and damage you are as yet unaware of. So get yourself a solicitor and get proceedings issued.
