Sony Fails to Dismiss Lawsuit Over 'Interview' Data Hacking

15 16.06.2015 Инфо

(Reuters) - A U.S. judge rejected Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc's bid to dismiss a lawsuit by nine former employees who claimed their personal data was stolen in a 2014 hacking tied to the studio's release of a comedy set in North Korea, "The Interview."
District Judge Gary Klausner said the plaintiffs could pursue claims that the Sony Corp unit was negligent and violated a California confidentiality law by spurning security measures to stop the theft of employees' salary and health data, Social Security numbers and other sensitive information.
Sony did not immediately respond on Tuesday to a request for comment.
