Submission + - Labor Union Files Suit Agains TSA Over Lost Drive

madsheep writes: "Recently on Slashdot there was a story about how TSA lost a hard drive "containing Social Security numbers, bank data and payroll information for about 100,000 employees." Well now a federal labor union has filed a suit against TSA over the lost drive. A quote from the article: "TSA's reckless behavior is clearly in violation of the law," said John Gage, AFGE's national president. "TSA must be held liable for this wanton disregard for employee privacy. A DHS agency that cannot even shield its own employee data is not reassuring." In the wake of the numerous embarassing privacy issues hitting the both the commercial and federal sectors, will this lawsuit bring about even more change?"

"What I've done, of course, is total garbage." -- R. Willard, Pure Math 430a
