Ex-patient sues storage firm over stolen University of Utah Hospital records
Days after the University of Utah Hospitals and Clinics announced the theft of 2.2 million patients' billing records containing a variety of personal information, a former patient claims Perpetual Storage Inc. negligently allowed the records to be stolen and exposed him to the risk of identity theft. The patient's attorney, Karra Porter, wants the storage company to fund any credit repair, legal counsel and technical support for patients whose identities are actually misused. Porter said her firm, Christensen & Jensen, also plans to sue the university on behalf of the patient.
