Lawsuit Filed for 26.5 Mil Vets in Data Privacy Snafu

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the 26.5 million vets whose personal records were lost by Veterans Affairs due to employee negligence, reports the AP.

The litigator is Paul Hackett, a Cincinnati attorney and Marine reservist who served in Iraq. He narrowly lost a grass-roots fostered bid for Congress last year.

Damages are asked of the VA of $1000+ per veteran.

    Paul Hackett rules. For this, and in general.

    That is all.

    1000.00??!! that’s it? wtf? i say start at a cool million for each person. costly mistake but a) the vets are owed at least that much for what nearly all of them have been through in their life and b) 27 million is a drop in the bucket for this administration – old dick might have to cut back on his buck shot and GWB might have to give up his next 2 vacations but i think that just about would cover it.
