In the suit, Wegmans alleged the company's cyber-security allowed hackers to break into Invermar's electronic systems.

From there, Wegmans said the hackers were able to re-route Wegmans' payments into the hacker's own pockets.

It's not clear how much the hackers moved, but Wegmans asked Invermar for $900,000 in damages.

Wegmans says no customer data was compromised.

Its spokesperson declined further comment.
