in brief Law firm Piper Alderman, which is planning a class action lawsuit against Vodafone over the quality of its 3G mobile service, is investigating whether it can also include the telco's recent alleged data breach into the case.

The firm is sending out a questionnaire to the over 9000 Vodafone customers who have already indicated their interest in the class action lawsuit, according to Sasha Ivantsoff. It will add a question about the alleged breach.

Piper Alderman hopes to know the results of that questionnaire by the end of the week, and will consider whether there is basis for including the claim into the action.

If there are no grounds for it to be included, the law firm could consider it as a separate case.
