Three reporters for CNET Networks and their families sued Hewlett-Packard in California state court accusing it of violating their privacy. The lawsuit arises out of last year's revelations that the company used illegal methods to obtain phone records in an attempt to discover the source of a board leak. Hewlett Packard said that it has already apologized to the reporters and offered them a substantial settlement offer.
