In the wake of the recent trend of consumer privacy lawsuits filed against major media corporations, a federal judge in Georgia has allowed similar claims against Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) to proceed, denying its motion to dismiss while granting its motion for leave to file a response to a new suit.

The plaintiff, Jazmine Harris, said she signed up for a free account with and she provided her name, email address, phone number, ZIP code and IP address to PBS. She used her account to watch videos while being simultaneously logged into her Facebook account, according to the opinion written by Judge Michael J. Brown for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Monday.
