Mayo Clinic faces lawsuits over nude patient image snooping

Kristen Leigh Painter reports an update to a previously reported insider-wrongdoing breach:

Mayo Clinic is facing three lawsuits from patients who say a former surgery resident, Ahmad Alsughayer, viewed hundreds of their nude photographs in electronic medical records despite having no professional reason to go into their files.

Alsughayer, who is 28 and has a current address in Saginaw, Mich., was charged in April by the Olmsted County, Minn., attorney’s office with a single gross misdemeanor of unauthorized computer access after one of the 1,614 patients whose records he viewed filed a report with the Rochester Police.
