Hawaii Sues Executive for Dumping Records

Bookmark and Share

According to an article in the Pacific Business News on March 21, 2007, Stephen Marn, who paid a handyman to take boxes of confidential records to the dump, has been formally accused of violating Hawaii’s consumer protection laws.

Marn was the president of a title company, which went out of business in 2004. He told PBN he paid someone to take the boxes of documents to the dump.

The DCCA alleges that Marn broke not one but several state laws, including the new "Dumpster-diving law" that requires companies to dispose of records by burning or shredding them. It calls for fines of up to $2,500 per violation.

"(Marn) failed to employ reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect the personal information contained in the documents," DCCA said Wednesday.
