ID theft lawsuit filed in China

Lawsuits in the U.S. are a dime a dozen, but here’s a lawsuit filed over an identity theft case in China that I linked to earlier this week:

Luo Caixia, a student of Tianjin Normal University whose identity was stolen by her classmate to enter another university, has launched a lawsuit to demand compensation and apology.

The court in Xiqing District, Tianjin, accepted the case Friday, Luo’s lawyer Pan Qiang told Xinhua Saturday.

Luo sued her classmate Wang Jiajun, Wang’s parents, her alma mater high school, the education bureau of her hometown, Guizhou Normal University and the education bureau in Guizhou, according to Pan.

Luo demanded 35,200 yuan (5,160 U.S. dollars) in compensation for economic losses and 100,000 yuan in compensation for emotional distress, both from Wang Jiaqun.
