Four days, four class-action lawsuits. Another complaint has been filed against Sony — after lawsuits on Monday , Tuesday and Wednesday — claiming the studio didn’t take adequate precautions to prepare itself for the cyberattack that led to the disclosure of thousands of employees’ private information. The plaintiffs in the new case are Michael Levine and Lionel Felix, and both say they worked for Sony — Levine as a technical director for Sony Pictures Imageworks from 2003 to 2012, and Felix as a director of technology for Sony Pictures Digital Entertainment from 2001 to 2004. Like the other plaintiffs, they say they entrusted the studio with information including social security numbers, bank account and heath care information, and salary history. Their complaint, filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, contends that the release of that information will cause the plaintiffs and their families "to remain vigilant for the rest of their lives to combat potential identity theft."
