“The Standard has identified the individual responsible for breaching the security policies of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video released by TMZ,” said officials from The Standard in a statement. “The Standard has already terminated the individual and will now be pursuing all available civil and criminal remedies. The Standard will next be turning over all available information to the criminal authorities.”

The person in question reportedly sold the video for $250,000 so unless they end up getting sued (which could happen) at least they bought themselves a little time to find a new job.
