Texas Official Must Talk About Data Leaks

David Lee reports:

A state judge ordered the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts to comply with a request for a deposition on the leak of personal information of more than 3.5 million people.

Comptroller Susan Combs disclosed in April that the personal information of 3.5 million state employees and former employees had been stored on a publicly accessible computer server for about a year.

Travis County Judge Rhonda Hurley ruled on Monday that Combs must submit to questions about the leak from the Texas Civil Rights Project.
