In the Chicago Trib today (sec 1 p. 8 col. 2):

(The woman mentioned, Amy Boyer, was killed by a stalker who got her
SSN and work address through Docusearch. Her parents are suing
Docusearch for invasion of privacy, negligence, etc.)

Schulman, at the hearing, argued that none of the information
Docusearch provided was private. Docusearch had hired a woman who
called Boyer and her family to get her work address without revealing
why she was calling, a technique known as "pretexting."
