Default New York Hunter license info to remain confidential: court

New York
Hunter license info to remain confidential: court
Albany County Supreme Court Judge William McCarthy ruled in favor of the DEC and against the NY State Assembly seeking a judgment compelling the NYSDEC to release information on hunting license buyers. The decision indicates that the information will not become public.
The Assembly was seeking a judgment compelling the DEC to provide license buyers? personal information but the court agreed the information should remain private. DEC Director of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources Gerald Barnhart gave sworn testimony to support the reasoning for not giving out the information. The ?DECALS? program provides the buyers first & last name, suffix, gender, height, eye color, date of birth,
driver?s license id number, customer id number, state residency, notation of blindness, military service, disability, fulfillment information, preference points, e-mail address, residential address and telephone number. The New York State Conservation Council maintained that this information should not be released.
The court, stated: ?Identity theft, without question, is becoming one of the fastest growing criminal offenses in the twenty-first century. Furthermore, the Federal Trade Commission estimates that in a five-year period prior to early 2003 in the US alone, there were 27.3 million reported cases of identity theft alone.?
