Attorneys seek state Supreme Court review of Sutter data breach case
Sacramento Business Journal

Plaintiffs’ attorneys in a data theft class action against Sutter Health say they will petition for California Supreme Court review of the case dismissed by an appeals court Monday.

The Third District Court of Appeals dismissed 13 coordinated lawsuits filed after a computer with personal data on 4.24 million patients was stolen from a local office in October 2011. The reason: There’s no proof anybody actually looked at the stolen information following the theft.
