A former judge was arrested for making false statements to a federal agent.  The former judge was attempting to reopen an eating-disorder clinic and tossed old records into a nearby dumpster in June of 2010.  Authorities found 15 to 20 boxes of papers with patient names, Social Security numbers, addresses, dates of birth, medical complaints, medical diagnosis, treatment information and other health information.  When a federal agent asked the former judge about the boxes, he responded that they contained business information without any sensitive medical information.
