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.

Sony warned customers of its PlayStation Network and Qriocity service that their personal information, including customer names, addresses, e-mail addresses, birthdays, PlayStation Network and Qriocity passwords, and user names, as well as online user handles, was obtained illegally by an “unauthorized person” between April 17 and April 19. The company says there is “no evidence” that credit card information was compromised, but it can’t be sure yet.
