A motion to combine all legal filings went unopposed by embattled studio [Sony}.
A California federal judge has approved a motion to combine seven class action lawsuits filed by Sony Pictures employees into one. ... The suits came after November’s studio hack, that dumped thousands of personal employee documents on filesharing sites including their medical records, social security numbers and emails.
“Consolidation will eliminate duplication of effort and make litigating the case more convenient and efficient for the parties and the Court,” the papers read. Sony, referred to as SPE, did not oppose the ruling.
There are also wage suppression lawsuits being wrestled with, so it's not a happy season for Sony.
