You might be interested to know that a similar issue recently arose with the Fairfax County, VA school board. The issue there was an alleged plain failure to redact, rather than sloppy software usage. But the legal issue was the same: was the school board entitled to a restraining order requiring the recipient to return the files to to refrain from further publishing them? Other than requiring redacting of Tax ID and bank account #s, which the defendants didn't oppose, the judge recently denied the requested restraining order. You can read the full chronology here:
