Advocate Health class action lawsuit trimmed

Linn Foster Freedman writes:

Last week, an Illinois judge dismissed with prejudice five of the six claims levied against Advocate Health Care in a consolidated case of ten cases filed against it following the data breach it experienced in July of 2013 when four unencrypted laptops were stolen from its administrative office, exposing the data of four million patients. The only remaining claim is that of negligence for those plaintiffs who claim they suffered identity theft as a result of the data breach.
