Co-chairman Joe Conran and Partners Tom Dee and Jim Monafo were mentioned in a December 24, 2009, St. Louis Business Journal article.
The article covers the dismissed class action lawsuit against Express Scripts, Inc., regarding its handling of a data security breach in 2008.
Filed May 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, the lawsuit claimed that Express Scripts did not have adequate security to protect its members' confidential information, putting them at increased risk of identity theft. The claim arose from extortion attempts in 2008 and 2009 from an anonymous source, threatening to expose millions of the company's patient records. Conran, Dee and Monafo represented Express Scripts in the case.
