FAIRFIELD — The theft of an employee’s laptop has spurred 15 lawsuits by Solano State Prison inmates in Vacaville who contend the computer may have contained private information about them – although a state spokeswoman said there is no indication that inmates’ personal information was compromised.

Joyce Hayhoe, spokeswoman for California Corrections Health Care Services, said Monday that the laptop stolen April 25, 2016, from an employee’s car has not been recovered.
