Sony Ex-Employees File Amended Class Action Suit Over Hacking Attack
Ted Johnson reports:
Nine former Sony employees have filed an amended class action lawsuit against Sony Pictures Entertainment, alleging that the studio failed to take adequate safeguards to protect personal information that was exposed in the hacking attack last year.
“Following the breach, SPE has focused on its own remediation efforts, not on protecting employees’ sensitive records or minimizing the harm to its employees and their families,” states the amended complaint, filed on Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. “Rather, SPE has focused on securing its own intellectual property from pirates and a public relations campaign directed at controlling damage to SPE associated with the release of embarrassing internal emails.”
