Unless gross negligence can be shown in not protecting patron's information the lawsuit should be thrown out.

Everybody EXPECTS privacy but then again everybody EXPECTS operating systems to work, ATM's to not be bugged, etc.
Many breaches are 'social engineering' oriented, many are highly technical.

Breaches rarely result in publication of files, just use of credit card data, misuse of which is often covered by some sort of insurance agreement.

One company hired temp typists and found out that the 'general dictation pool' had temp typists who were trained data thieves able to prowl into other disk drives right from the start. Even prompt detection and prompt action didn't stop things.

We all expect certain privacy. It is the casino's responsibility to protect the data. Not the customer. Putting this info online to make it "convenient" is gross negligent already.

If your laptop was hacked and the photos on your hard drive were stolen, would it be fair to argue that you shouldn't have put your photos "online to make it convenient?"

It is a business. Protecting sensitive info is the duty . Just like a truck company has to maintain its fleet.

The article says the hacks were occuring since 2004. If the casino didnt notice hacks for more than a dozen years there may be grounds for gross negligence
