The first class action lawsuits over Sony's PlayStation breach are starting to appear. InformationWeek reports that Kristopher Johns has filed suit against Sony in the U.S. District Court's Northern District of California, alleging Sony

According to The Wall Street Journal, the breach also prompted another filing in federal court in Los Angeles, alleging Sony was negligent in allowing the theft of its members' personal information.
