The U.K. Court of Appeal upheld the High Court’s ruling against Morrisons for its 2014 data breach, BBC News reports. The appeal court determined Morrisons is liable for the breach where an employee stole the personal information of nearly 100,000 employees. Morrisons argued it could not be held liable for criminal misuse of the data. The supermarket chain added it plans to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. "Morrisons worked to get the data taken down quickly, provide protection for those colleagues and reassure them that they would not be financially disadvantaged. In fact, we are not aware that anybody suffered any direct financial loss," the company said in a statement.
