What is this lawsuit about?
The lawsuit claims that Sonic did not have adequate safeguards in place and should be held responsible for the Data Breach and asserts claims such as: breach of implied contract, negligence, negligence per se, unjust enrichment, and violations of numerous state consumer-protection and data breach statutes.
Sonic denies these claims in their entirety and asserts that Sonic did have adequate safeguards in place and did nothing wrong.
