Sutter Medical sued after theft of computer with patient data

Sutter Health had a class action suit filed against them after a computer was stolen containing personally identifiable data of more than 944,000 thousand patients.  The suit seeks $1000 per person in damages for all affected.  Evidently the data was not encrypted and the suit is based on the failure to secure medical information based on California’s Confidentiality of Medical Information Act.  Source: BusinessInsurance.com
