ChoicePoint settlement: I blogged in the past about the security breach at ChoicePoint, where a lot of personal information was sold by the company to a criminal gang that used the information for some systemic identity theft. Well, ChoicePoint has agreed to a $15,000,000 fine; $10 million is the fine to the FTC, and $5 million goes into a fund to repay victims.

UPDATE: here's a copy of the judgment.
