UCLA hospital fined over privacy breaches that sources say involve Michael Jackson's records

Los Angeles Times, June 11, 2010

California health regulators have fined Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center $95,000 for allowing unauthorized employees to view a patient's medical records, a breach that sources indicated targeted the files of Michael Jackson. The fine, one of six privacy-related penalties state officials announced, stems from multiple violations that led to the firing of two hospital employees. Two hospital contract workers were also fired for accessing the same patient's information, UCLA officials said.
