As we are sure you understand, given that over 70 million individuals are impacted by the Sony Playstation Network security breach or disablement, the Rothken Law Firm is receiving numerous calls and thousands of emails requesting information, offering assistance and/or providing further factual support. During this time period we urge you to continue to pay attention to directions from Sony.
In the meantime we are continuing our investigation. To assist us in this process, you may (but are not required to) fill out the intake form on our Law Firm website. This would expedite our ability to compile contacts and prepare communications in an efficient manner. Please indicate “Sony Class Action” in the subject line, then use the text box for describing your experience, including, but not limited to, whether you have suffered any fraudulent use of your credit information you attribute to the Sony data breach, and stating any specific questions you may have. Do not include sensitive information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and security questions in your communications with us - we will never ask you for such information. You will also find links to news articles regarding the case on this page including below.
There is nothing that you need to do at present to be involved with this litigation. In the event we reach a settlement with Sony or obtain a judgment on behalf of the Class, there will be a notification process supervised by the Court, at which time all potential Class members will have the opportunity to consider the terms of the settlement or judgment and decide whether he or she wishes to be included or excluded or objects to the settlement.
Please take whatever steps you deem necessary and appropriate to protect your own personal and financial information and to guard against identity theft. Some recommendations from PC WORLD include:
1. Be wary of people calling or e-mailing you asking for extra information such as your Social Security number or other personal information
2. Monitor your credit card for suspicious activity or consider canceling it and getting a new one
3. Review your online passwords to see whether you are using the same password and login ID across multiple accounts. If, for example, your PSN and e-mail logins are the same, change your e-mail address password immediately. Of course, for an extra layer of protection, you may consider changing your security questions and challenge responses on other sites.
