CLASS ACTION REPRESENTING OVER 77 MILLION SONY PLAYSTATION OWNERS FILED AGAINST SONY

| May 10, 2011 | Firm Case News

The firm has filed a class action lawsuit against Sony for the wrongful release of over 77 million Sony PlayStation owners. Between, April 17 and April 19, 2011, Sony’s PlayStation Network service user account information was compromised by an illegal and unauthorized intrusion into their network. Although the breach occurred between the dates of April 17 and 19, 2011, the public was not notified until April 26, 2011. Defendants then issued a “Consumer Alert” by email notifying the public of the breach of personal information. The alert noted that “while there is no evidence at this time that credit card data was taken, we cannot rule out the possibility.” On April 26, 2011, an article in The Wall Street Journal commented that this breach could rank among the biggest in history.
