Someone noticed a pile of discarded paperwork and informed a local news station after it had not been removed within a week. Documents with the personal information of dozens of former St. Louis University students were exposed near a dumpster in a back alley.  Most appeared to date back to the mid 1990's and correspond to library fines for late or lost books.  An SLU security team picked up the papers after hearing about the incident.

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.
