British supermarket Morrisons loses court appeal over data breach-PA

LONDON, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Morrisons, Britain’s fourth biggest supermarket, has lost a Court of Appeal challenge against a group of its staff whose personal details were posted on the internet by a former employee, the Press Association reported.

Shares turned negative after the ruling and were last down 1.3 percent on the day.

The supermarket lost a case in the High Court last year, meaning that former and current workers who brought the liability claim could seek compensation.
