Judge Battaglia also noted that the personal information stolen was due a criminal intrusion, and since the plaintiffs' original complaint did not claim that Sony was involved with the criminal intrusion itself, there could be no bailment charge with prejudice. In other words, the plaintiffs cannot blame the criminal act itself on Sony.
The Judge went on to say that Sony violated no consumer-protection laws, "because none of the named plaintiffs subscribed to premium PSN services, and thus received the PSN services free of cost."
In the end, Judge Battaglia dismissed seven of the eight claims, and he gave the the plaintiffs a limited time period to file an amended petition with any new or revised claims.
