According to IGN.com, The lawsuit was filed by the Rothken Law Firm today in a California court and alleges Sony
failed to take reasonable care to protect, encrypt, and secure the private and sensitive data.
One of the attorney’s that filed the suit, Ira P. Rothken, had this to say as well
We brought this lawsuit on behalf of consumers to learn the full extent of Sony PlayStation Network data security practices and the data loss and to seek a remedy for consumers. We are hopeful that Sony will take this opportunity to learn from the network vulnerabilities, provide a remedy to consumers who entrusted their sensitive data to Sony, and lead the way in data security best practices going forward
