CHICAGO (CN) - Tens of thousands of Old National Bancorp customers whose personal financial information was stolen by a computer hacker cannot recover damages from the Indiana bank, the Seventh Circuit ruled.

Plaintiffs said they should be reimbursed for the credit-monitoring services they obtained to protect against identity theft, because the bank had failed to secure its site.
