Data Privacy Creep: SJC Joins Club, Approves Interim Guidelines for Prevention of Identity Theft; File a Way

The grand Commonwealth of Massachusetts has, of late, taken a serious interest in the protection (from identity theft) of its residents’ private information. This is, to be sure, a good thing, in the abstract, and far better than other objects that the state could be/has been engaged in. I have been fortunate enough […]
