Sony has been cleared of multiple charges levelled at the firm regarding last year’s headline-hitting PSN hack. Courthouse News reports that US District Judge Anthony Battaglia threw out charges including “negligence, unjust enrichment, bailment and violations of California consumer protection statutes”.
The reason given was that none of the named plaintiffs are paying PSN subscribers “and thus received the PSN services free of cost”.
The class action had argued that “Sony knew or should have known that its system was vulnerable to such an attack” and that it failed to take satisfactory precautionary steps upon the first instance of a PS3 jailbreak.
He added: “Plaintiffs' personal information was stolen as a result of a criminal intrusion of Sony's Network. Plaintiffs do not allege that Sony was in any way involved with the Data Breach.”
It was also stated that it would have been unreasonable for any customer to expect Sony’s security measures to be perfect.
