Ashley Madison Sued Over Data Breach

Ashley Madison Sued Over Data Breach

The Canadian-based adultery website AshleyMadison.com has been sued by U.S. clients -- led by the always litigious “John Doe” -- over a data breach that exposed more than 37 million users.

The website, with the slogan “Life is Short. Have an Affair,” and its parent company Avid Life Media Inc. of Toronto, were sued by users in California who complained they paid $19 to have AshleyMadison scrub their profiles from the site, only to find out it didn’t do so.

In Texas, users sued claiming the website failed to notify them promptly about the threat and then the actual release of personal information.

The parent companies have also been sued in Canada, with two law firms having filed a $578 million class-action lawsuit, the Associated Press reported.
