An update to this insider breach at Flowers Hospital in Alabama. The breach, reported in April, has already resulted in a potential class action lawsuit, which the hospital has moved the court to dismiss. In today’s development, Ken Curtis reports:
A Henry County man has been indicted on charges he sold personal information of patients stolen from Flowers Hospital. Court records show a grand jury that recent met in Abbeville determined there is sufficient evidence against Karmarian Millender to take him to trial.
