I do not know how this will end – legally. But they do have a lot of nerve. You use a site to cheat on your spouse and you have the nerve to sue when it gets hacked and you get caught. My advice to the plaintiffs – make sure you have a lot of Ashley Madison users on your jury.
From today’s Daily Report:
Eight people across the U.S. who registered to use Ashley Madison are suing the website for cheaters after hackers released personal and detailed information of millions of users, including financial data and sexual proclivities.
The lawsuits were filed between last month and Monday by Ashley Madison users in California, Texas, Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee and Minnesota. They all seek class-action status to represent the estimated 37 million registered users of Ashley Madison.
The lawsuits, which seek unspecified damages, claim negligence, breach of contract and privacy violations. They say Ashley Madison failed to take reasonable steps to protect the security of its users, including those who paid a special fee to have their information deleted.
