Good Evening

In order to sue them you have to prove that you have suffered some loss due to their release.

You can lodge a complaint about then for breaching privacy but if there is no loss to you they will not be made to pay you anything.

If there is loss you can sue them for negligence and seek compensation but you have to show the losses and be able to quantify them.

Law firms such as maurice blackburn and shine lawyers can assist.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. You rating my work 5 stars allows me to continue to provide a service to those who require it.

I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Regards

Leon
