Miami medical record theft case: I saw this on BNA this morning (subscription required):

"A South Florida man was indicted on multiple criminal counts for allegedly paying a technician at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital to provide him with confidential patient information that he in turn would sell [to an unnamed personal injury lawyer], federal prosecutors announced July 31 (United States v. Rodriguez, S.D. Fla., No. 1:09-CR-20623-JAL, indictment unsealed 7/30/09)."

The ultrasound tech, Rebecca Garcia, had already pled guilty to one count of wrongful disclosure of individually identifiable health information.
