LifeLock Responds In Legal Case
Tempe, Arizona-based LifeLock, a venture backed operator of identity theft services, said Monday that the firm has filed a motion to reconsider a judgement in California's U.S. District Court. The case, Experian v. Lifelock, claimed that LifeLock was illegally using Experian's credit ratings service and fraud alert processes beyond what was intended by the law. Last month, LifeLock was found to be acting illegally by placing fraud alerts on the behalf of consumers, with the judge ruling that the laws behind the placement of fraud alerts applied to only consumers, not companies.
