Mealey's (October 2, 2015, 1:01 PM EDT) -- PHILADELPHIA — A former employee of The Coca-Cola Co. has standing to sue the beverage giant related to the theft of laptops that contained his personally identifiable information (PII), a Pennsylvania federal judge ruled Sept. 30, declining to dismiss for lack of standing. However, the judge granted partial dismissal of the putative class action, finding that claims for negligence and fraud were not properly pleaded (Shane K. Enslin v. The Coca-Cola Co., et al., No. 2:14-cv-06476, E.D. Pa.; 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 133168).
