The State Bar of Nevada learned that criminals forced their way into a State Bar storage facility and stole some confidential records. The State Bar is working with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in an active police investigation in this incident.
The unauthorized access took place in one storage facility where the State Bar stored historical documents in paper, not electronic, form relating to past bar exam applications. Through a complete inventory of all records the State Bar has determined that the criminals forced their way into one unit. This inventory shows 18 records of individuals were stolen. All those affected by this theft have been contacted.
The State Bar has taken and continues to take all precautions to protect the confidential records held by the State Bar.
We take this crime seriously. It was a crime against the State Bar of Nevada.
