Thousands of personnel documents were found in a dumpster.  W-4 forms, employment applications, and other employee documents were found by the news team FactFinder 12.  Social Security numbers, addresses, and phone numbers of people across the country were exposed.  It appears that the files were dumped because the office was closing.

UPDATE (11/29/2011): Lone Star Funds (LSF) owned Lone Star Business Solutions.  Lone Star Business Solutions managed the LSF restaurants which included Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon, Texas Land & Cattle Steak House, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, and Sullivan's Steakhouse.  The documents exposed in this breach were left behind after LSF decided to move the restaurant management business to Dallas.

The Kansas attorney general's office investigated the breach and Lone Star Steakhouse (LS Management Inc.) was fine $200,000 for the improper disposal of confidential employee records.
