Advocate Health Medical patients file class action suit over medical records theft

September 6, 2013 (CHICAGO)

The lead plaintiffs are a mother and her daughter.

But their attorneys say millions of patients of Advocate Medical Group were affected by the security breach.

Advocate Medical Group notified patients last month that burglars stole four computers from its administrative offices in Park Ridge in July.

An Advocate Health spokeswoman says there's no indication the stolen information has been misused.
