Two former Sony employees, Joshua Foster and Ella Carline Archibeque, have filed a class action lawsuit against Sony, the third lawsuit filed against the company in the past week.

According to the lawsuit obtained by EW, the plaintiffs allege that Sony “failed to adequately safeguard its current and former employees’ personal information” and as a result are seeking “injunctive relief requiring [Sony Pictures Entertainment] to implement and maintain security practices to comply with regulations designed to prevent and remedy these types of breaches.”

The lawsuit is similar to the others previously filed, which claim Sony knew its systems weren’t entirely secure for years but “made a ‘business decision to accept the risk’ of losses associated with being hacked.'”

Plaintiffs are also seeking “restitution, damages, and other relief.” Sony declined to comment.
