More than 25 breach of contract lawsuits have been filed against Sony Corp. after a recent data breach.
According to Westlaw legal database, at least 25 lawsuits have been filed against Sony in the U.S. over the theft of user data from the PlayStation game network. The lawsuits accuse Sony of negligence and breach of contract for allowing the personal data of more than 100 million users to be compromised and stolen.
Sony has been criticized for not telling customers quickly enough that their personal data had been compromised last month. The company said it is possible that whoever broke into Sony’s system stole about 12.3 million credit card numbers.
The company has apologized to its customers. A Sony representative declined to comment on the lawsuits.
