Nevada Court says Jury IDs Compromised

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Court officials in Las Vegas say they've notified 380 people about a security breach involving the unauthorized release of personal identification information.

Clark County District Court spokesman Michael Sommermeyer says
letters went out June 30 to everyone the court knows of whose
names, addresses, Social Security numbers and birth dates were
involved.

He says a worker at a Las Vegas printing company that handles jury summonses moved people's ID information to a personal e-mail account, where it might have been compromised.

He says local, state and federal agencies are investigating, along with court administrators.

A&B Printing owner Kathy Gillespie says the company notified the court as soon as the breach was found.

She says there's no evidence that any names were illegally or wrongly distributed.
