California businessman and cryptocurrency trader, Skye Bonow, has decided to file suit against the world’s #1 altcoin exchange, Cryptsy, after having his own personal computer compromised.

In court documents filed yesterday in the 15th Judicial Court of Florida, Silver Law Firm alleges that Cryptsy violated the state’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act by failing to provide critical information regarding security risks and customer fund management protocols.

They're not just suing Cryptsy for having poor security, they're claiming that Cryptsy is actively involved in the theft and that the "online cryptocurrency trading platform" is just a guise.

I don't think they have a big chance of winning this ^^

Quote
This action seeks to compensate Plaintiff for the theft of his Bitcoin, an act of complex design, perpetrated upon him by Defendants under the guise of an online cryptocurrency trading platform created and deployed by Defendants specifically to induce the public, including Plaintiff, to transfer Bitcoin to Defendants for Defendants’ later misappropriation and use.
