Today a complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California accusing Sony of not taking “reasonable care to protect, encrypt, and secure the private and sensitive data of its users.” The suit, filed on behalf of a Mr. Johns, 36, of Birmingham, Ala., is seeking class-action status, according to Ira P. Rothken, the attorney who filed the complaint.
The law suit is asking for monetary compensation and free credit-card monitoring.
