Judge Halts ID Theft Case

A state judge in Colorado halted prosecutions of undocumented workers rounded up by the Weld County (Greeley) district attorney for fraudulent use of Social Security numbers. The DA had used tax records to check for discrepancies in the numbers and charging those whose numbers didn't match with ID theft. (See posting for Feb. 2, 2009.) The judge is looking into whether the action was illegal and will make a judgment next month. (See New York Times article.)
