Sony Pictures Entertainment has reached a settlement to resolve a proposed class-action lawsuit brought by former employees who said the company did not do enough to protect their personal information, which was exposed in last year's cyberattack, the Los Angeles Times reports. That was the hack, blamed on North Korea, that forced Sony to change release plans for "The Interview," a comedy about a plot to assassinate North Korea’s leader. Sony’s co-chairwoman Amy Pascal also left the studio after the breach revealed embarrassing emails between Sony executives and Hollywood power players. The settlement terms have not yet been disclosed.
