AOL has been sued over its online release of data on the Internet searches of more than 650,000 members in late July. A lawsuit seeking class action status was filed against AOL on Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
The lawsuit accuses AOL of violating the Electronic Communications Privacy Act...and seeks at least $5,000 for every person whose search data was exposed.
