An Illinois LinkedIn user filed a $5 million class action lawsuit against the well-known professional networking website this week. The claim comes shortly after the reported security breach and hacking of thousands of customer usernames and passwords. The suit, filed in the Northern District of California, claims that LinkedIn violated its own privacy policies and user agreements because it did not follow industry security standards, leaving its customers’ personal information vulnerable to the public at large. Representatives on behalf of LinkedIn insist that the claim is without merit and that no one was actually damaged in the security breach. However, Plaintiff’s attorneys are moving forward with the case in California as they seek to certify a class for the lawsuit.
