Sensitive court documents remained in a recycling dumpster for two weeks because of a missed scheduled pick-up.  The court respondent documents included Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, telephone numbers, and detailed accounts of why an order of protection was needed.  They were removed upon discovery. Some files were from 2007, though the exact group of people who may have been affected is unclear.  The information was from closed cases and could be found in the public record.
