I'm sure y'all fully expected the suits at Sony to get sued and sho' nuff...
Sony Hit With Class Action Lawsuit Over PSN Breach
The Rothken law firm filed the suit in a California district court (the proper place to sue Sony) on behalf of one Kristopher Johns and the other 76,999,999-ish PSN users in the world. It attacks Sony for failing to put proper safeguards in place, which is possibly a breach of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a set of rules designed to protect consumers from credit card fraud.The suit specifically asks for compensation for the "extra time, effort, and costs" that might have to go into credit monitoring services and replacement.
Whatever happens this PSN security breach will dearly cost Sony.
