If they have it may be a criminal or at least civil violation depending where your at. You have proof of this, right?

What information (or what kind of information) did they release...

and to whom did they release it?

Wasn't there a complaint on this place last week, but it was totally inappropriate and removed from the site? I'm sure I'll get slapped down, but I don't buy this for one second.

Not sure skelly. My google search (including google cache) didn't reveal anything.

I still however would like to know what kind of information they leaked and to whom.

mainly because i have seen cases where some people have said "HIPAA violation" for situations that don't apply (like a pharmacist verifying a 'script with the doctor)

So... if anything, it's perhaps easier to gain support if the HIPAA-violation claim has a little bit of background information. Doesn't have to include the actual medical info, but perhaps what kind of information was leaked (like "my medical history" or "a recent physical condition") and to whom. like "omg they told the local newspaper" or whomever it was they spoke to etc.
