After an employee laptop was taken, a local medical firm has issued a warning that patient information may have been exposed

The Resource Anesthesiology Association of California says the laptop was stolen from an employee’s vehicle on July 8. A police report was filed but the company says the laptop was never recovered.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Resource Anesthesiology Association of California, a local medical company, is warning that patients might have had their personal information compromised following a laptop theft.

It later determined that patients’ personal information was on the laptop — including names, birth dates, insurance information, and diagnosis and treatment information. The company says it reached out to some patients known to have been impacted — and is providing credit monitoring and identity theft protection services for those patients. However, not all patient addresses were available, so the company is asking anyone who believes they may have had their information stolen to contact them.

Liliana Jimenez and her 12-year-old brother, Christian, were shot July 18, along with their father, while riding in a car on Hill Street in Arvin. Liliana was killed. Christian and his father were wounded and later hospitalized. Santos says they are recovering, at least physically.

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas (KVEO) — The nation’s two biggest ride-share companies are both planning to legally support drivers who may be sued under a new Texas law that penalizes anyone who drives a woman to an abortion clinic after six weeks into a pregnancy.

Lyft announced it was setting up a Driver Legal Defense Fund to cover all legal fees for drivers sued under SB8, Texas’s controversial abortion bill that bans the procedure six months into a pregnancy and penalizes anyone who assists in the process.

State lawmakers have until Friday to pass or kill hundreds of proposals, including a last-minute request from Gov. Gavin Newsom.
