Plaintiffs clean up in $400,000 HIPAA settlement

In 2015, a Jackson County judge ruled in favor of 1,532 McShane & Brady plaintiffs in a HIPAA class action suit against Midwest Women's Healthcare Specialists. In a careless move, the clinic threw personal medical billing records in an outdoor dumpster in preparation for a construction project. Wind blew many of the papers containing confidential health care information into neighborhood bushes and trees.

Overall Judgment: $400,000
