A Texas woman is suing two online retailers alleging harm from the release of millions of users' personal information following a server hack, reports The Washington Post. The lawsuit, filed in Kentucky this week and seeking class-action status, alleges that Zappos--and therefore its parent company, Amazon--violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act and seeks damages for emotional distress and loss of privacy as well as a court order for the company to offer credit monitoring and identity theft insurance to those affected. The suit also seeks an order for mandatory audits to ensure customer data protection in the future. (Registration may be required to access this story.)
