Ca: Rouge Valley faces $400M class-action lawsuit over privacy breach

Joel Eastwood reports:

A $412-million class action lawsuit has been brought against a Scarborough hospital on behalf of thousands of patients whose personal information was leaked by two former employees.

The hospital revealed earlier this month that the contact information of as many as 8,300 patients at Rouge Valley Centenary, mainly mothers who gave birth between 2009 and 2013, had allegedly been handed over to private companies which marketed RESP investments to the new parents.

The hospital subsequently contacted the Toronto Police Service. The Ontario Securities Commission is also conducting an investigation.
