UPDATE: Madigan Takes Action Against Phone Records Broker


In a story we’ve been following closely, the Sun-Times reports that under Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan “Illinois has become the first state to sue an information broker for obtaining cell phone records and selling them on the Internet.”

Also, “On Friday, state Sen. Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) filed a bill to make it illegal for brokers or phone companies to sell or release such information. The bill also would require phone companies to secure the records.”
