The online journalism organization created and funded by Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, has now identified at least 57,000 records of attorney-client communications — including both attempted and completed calls — contained within a massive data hack it was anonymously provided.  Because the searches were done only for attorneys who reached out to The Intercept or whose numbers were publicly listed as attorney phone numbers, it is suspected  there are still many more attorney-client call records not yet identified in the data.
