0 comments

The HP boardroom spying saga isn't over yet: now journalists and their families are suing over invasion of their privacy. 


HP, former chairman Patricia Dunn and former ethics chief Kevin Hunsacker have been named as defendents in five seperate cases filed.
The lawsuits ask for a jury trial and seek damages arising from invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and engaging in unfair business practices.
The plaintiffs are three reporters from CNET Networks and an Associated Press reporter. Some family members are also named.
Both Dunn and Hunsacker were implicated in using the reporters' personal information to gain access to their confidential phone records.
