Report: Microsoft, T-Mobile sued over Sidekick glitch

It didn’t take long for lawsuits to be filed against Microsoft and T-Mobile USA by Sidekick owners furious about last week’s data loss, according to Cnet’s Ina Fried.

Two were filed in Northern California, she reports. An excerpt:

One suit, filed on behalf of a Bakersfield, Calif., man “and all others similarly situated” charges that, among other things, Microsoft and Danger failed to use reasonable care in handling Sidekick owners data and that the Sidekick was falsely advertised. That suit seeks monetary damages as well as an order requiring the companies to fix the Sidekicks and service or offer a full refund.

Time to read the contract’s fine print.
