    In 2006 a computer was stolen from the United States military. Though the FBI recovered it one month later the information on the computer was classified.
    A class action suit on the American military on itself, known as: In RE: Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Data Theft Litigation, MDL No. 1796 will be decided July 28, 2009 at 10 a.m. to the tune of $20 million US dollars.
    The problem with the God damned computer? It contains the following identifying information – The names, social security numbers, and dates of birth for up to 17.5 million veterans, spouses of veterans, and military personnel, as well as some disability ratings. Further, the data did not include any health records or financial information.
    The class action suit came with the judgment neither in favor of the defendants or plaintiffs, but resolved in a money settlement for the affected US soldiers.
    Actual damages include out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a direct result of the theft, including those that were: used to protect or monitor your personal or financial information; or the result of physical symptoms of severe emotional distress. Out-of-pocket expenses may include, for example, the purchase of credit monitoring to protect against identity loss.
    Well, though that may sound fascinating, the coup de grace is that the settlement also includes all representatives, heirs, administrators, executors, beneficiaries, agents, and assigns of the Class Members.
