Stanford, L.A. Contractor Tentatively Ordered To Pay $4.1M in Lawsuit Settlement Over Data Breach
Last week, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge tentatively ruled that Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Multi-Specialty Collection Services in Los Angeles must pay a $4.1 million settlement in a class action lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed after the medical information of 20,000 patients treated in the hospital's emergency department was posted on a public website for nearly a year.
