Stanford Hospital & Clinics and one of its former contractors will likely pay more than $4 million to settle a class action claim that they violated a state privacy law by allowing the medical information of 20,000 emergency room patients to be posted online for nearly a year.

The settlement was tentatively approved Wednesday by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle.
