As reported here Wednesday, Connecticut’s Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has filed suit against Health Net for failing to secure member information and for failure to notify members of a security breach in a timely fashion. United Health Group and Oxford Health Plans are also named as defendants in the suit because although they were not involved in the breach, they have have acquired ownership of Health Net of Connecticut.

The lawsuit is the first to invoke the new provisions of the HITECH Act.

Thanks to Courthouse News, a copy of the lawsuit is now available here (pdf).
