Baby died because of ransomware attack on hospital, suit says

An Alabama baby was born with severe brain injury and eventually died due to botched care because her hospital was struggling with a ransomware attack, a lawsuit alleges.

The filing is the first credible public claim that someone’s death was caused at least in part by hackers who remotely shut down hospital computers in an extortion attempt, a rising trend in cybercrime.

The lawsuit, filed by Teiranni Kidd, the baby’s mother, was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. It alleges that the hospital, Springhill Medical Center, didn’t tell her that hospital computers were down because of a cyberattack, and subsequently gave her severely diminished care when she arrived to deliver her daughter.

Springhill announced in 2019 that it had been the victim of a “network security incident,” a common euphemism for a cyberattack. As reported at the time by local news station WKRG, Springhill claimed to be seeing a regular volume of patients at the time, even though it was turning some away because of the ransomware attack.

Lawsuit accuses former Boston Ballet star and her husband of sexually abusing dancers

A former star of the Boston Ballet was named in a federal lawsuit that accuses her and her husband of sexually abusing dancers they were mentoring.

Two women, Sage Humphries and Gina Menichino, sued dance instructor Mitchell Taylor Button this summer and made disturbing allegations that he groomed them before he sexually abused them while they were his young students.

The civil complaint, filed Sept. 23 in U.S. District Court in Nevada, was amended last week to add three plaintiffs and to name former Boston Ballet principal dancer Dusty Button, Button's wife, as a co-defendant.

"The is a case about a couple who exploited their position of power and influence in the dance world to sexually abuse young dancers across the country," the complaint said.

The amended suit includes allegations by dancers Rosemarie DeAngelo and Danielle Gutierrez and a plaintiff identified as "Jane Doe 100."

North Carolina's Women's Soccer Team Fires Its Head Coach After He Was Accused Of Sexual Coercion

The North Carolina Courage announced Thursday afternoon that the team has fired head coach Paul Riley, effective immediately. The decision comes after multiple former players accused Riley of sexual coercion.

The allegations were detailed in a lengthy investigative story published by The Athletic Thursday morning. Sean Nahas has been named as interim head coach for the rest of the season, the team says. He starts that position at today's training.

In a statement issued Thursday afternoon, NWSL Commissioner Lisa Baird said she was "shocked and disgusted to read the new allegations" and that the NWSL is reporting the allegations to the US Center for SafeSport for investigation. She said the league is also implementing new measures to protect players including a new anonymous reporting process.

According to The Athletic, players contacted Baird directly earlier this year with their concerns. Baird told them a previous 2015 investigation into Riley's behavior had been "investigated to conclusion," the outlet reports.
