  • Randy Stevens et al vs. The Productivity Center Inc.

    PA - John Wylie, J � Gary Sanderson

    The Productivity Center Inc., a law enforcement database company, made headlines back in May after intruders burglarized PCI's Houston office and stole a laptop containing the names and social security numbers of more than 229,000 peace officers.

    After the May 9 robbery, PCI informed its client police agencies of the incident and changed all user passwords. Eight months later, not one identity has been reported stolen, but that hasn't stopped Randy Stevens and his attorneys from filing a class-action lawsuit against PCI, alleging the company's "wrongful conduct" increased his risk of identity theft.

    In his suit, Stevens' says PCI recommended he and the other officers monitor their credit reports. "But despite the Fact PCI�was responsible for putting Stevens and class members in harm's way, none of the defendants has offered to pay for credit monitoring services and credit insurance."

    However, PCI President Clare Keimig told the Record no one has ever asked the company to provide such services, nor, to her knowledge, has there been one case of identity theft stemming from the May 9 incident.
