Life Labs Gets Sued After Getting Pwned

You had to know that after getting hacked that Life Labs would be facing a lawsuit of some sort. Now according to CBC, a class action lawsuit has been filed:

A B.C. man is attempting to launch a class-action lawsuit against Canadian Laboratory testing company, LifeLabs, one day after it announced a large cyberattack on its systems affecting the private information of 15 million Canadians.

Kenneth Morrison, a retired Vancouver computer technician, filed a notice of civil claim against LifeLabs Wednesday in the Supreme Court of British Columbia, alleging the company breached its contract with Morrison to keep his private information safe.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The company has 21 days to respond. And it will be interesting to see how they respond. The thing is that I think that they will have difficulty defending themselves given the facts that are at hand. Thus they might want to get the chequebook ready.
