donniebaseball23 (1888144) writes "IndustryGamers reports that Nancy Graf of St. Paul, Minnesota has filed a class-action lawsuit against social gaming leader Zynga, alleging that the company illegally shared Facebook user data of its 218 million users with advertisers. The suit goes on to specify that Zynga’s actions are a violation of federal law and Zynga’s contract with Facebook. Filed in federal court, the suit seeks monetary relief for those whose personal information was wrongly shared and injunctive relief to prevent more violations by Zynga. "This appears to be another example of an online company failing the American public with empty promises to respect individual privacy rights," explained Michael Aschenbrener of Edelson McGuire LLC, co-lead attorney for the class action."
