Minnesota Public Radio reporter Sasha Aslanian broke a story about alleged free and public access to confidential and personal data of Minnesota state employees through a Houston, Texas-based company, Lookout Services. As a consequence, there appears to be a threat of  Computer Fraud and Abuse Act complaint against her (Minnpost Piece, here).

Talk about a nice candidate for Minnesota’s Anti-SLAPP statute
If Lookout Services wants to supplement the black eye of the original (apparently admitted) lapse, an action against the reporter is one option, I guess.

Covering all of its bases, Lookout Services is also suing the state of Minnesota in Texas (complaint here).  (See also here for Houston Chron coverage.)
