Judge Approves Settlement in Sony Pictures Entertainment's Hacking Case
Apr 6 16
A judge has approved a multimillion dollar settlement in a class-action lawsuit filed by former Sony Pictures Entertainment employees whose private information was stolen in a massive data breach. The US government blamed the hack on North Korea in an attempt to derail the release of the North Korean-focused comedy The Interview. US District Judge R Gary Klausner approved the agreement that gives roughly 437,000 people impacted by the breach identity theft protection from the time of the 2014 hack through 2017. Under the deal, Sony agreed to provide identity theft protection - as well as an optional service that will cover up to $1 million in losses - and create a fund to cover any additional losses. An exact figure for the settlement is not yet available, since a deadline for workers to sign up for credit protection and reimbursement hasn't yet passed. To date, Sony has committed $7 million to notify people affected by the breach and establish a fund to reimburse them for uncovered identity theft losses. That figure doesn't account for millions of dollars Sony has committed to pay for credit monitoring services and for plaintiffs' attorney fees. So far, 18,000 people have signed up for the optional service, which retails for $350. Sony will pay far less for the service. Highly sensitive personal information about current and former Sony Entertainment employees was stolen and posted online in the 2014 hack. Hackers calling themselves Guardians of Peace broke into company computers and released thousands of emails, documents and sensitive personal information.
