In a District Court security breach, a contracted vendor released 
personal information on about 380 potential jurors to an employee's 
private e-mail address, court officials said Thursday.

Clark County court officials said the people affected were notified by 
letters sent out Monday. Court officials did not specify whether the 
breach was intentional or accidental. They also didn't specify when the 
incident occurred.

The information was transferred from the printing company that prepares 
jury summons notices to an unidentified employee's e-mail account.

The information provided to the e-mail account could have included 
names, addresses, social security numbers and birth dates. After 
reviewing the matter, court officials determined much of the personal 
information released was incomplete.
