The Ashley Madison Problem Continues
Aside from being embarrassed and having to look for divorce attorneys, the leaked clientele of Ashley Madison are also pretty pissed.
In Case You’ve Somehow Missed it…
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so and haven’t heard, the spousal cheating site, Ashley Madison, was hacked and their client data was leaked. Meaning everyone from your cheating neighbor to a Florida States Attorney might have some explaining to do.
Big Problems Equal Big Payout
As of now, five suits have already been filed against Ashley Madison for breach of contract, negligence, and various privacy laws.
All American plaintiffs are currently anonymous, and haven’t yet filed a class-action lawsuit, but seem to be taking the preliminary steps to move that direction.
The fifth plaintiff, Canadian Eliot Shore, has already filed a class-action and is seeking $573 million.
By the sounds of it, this Ashley Madison hack may not be the worst thing that has ever happened to these likely newly divorced men. I’m guessing when they signed up for a little side action, they weren’t expecting a multimillion dollar payout on top of it.
