Family Law Drama Costs Walgreens $1.8 million

A disgruntled ex-boyfriend seeking to embarrass and gain leverage against his Crown Point ex-girlfriend (Plaintiff) convinced his new girlfriend (Pharmacist) to access the Plaintiff's prescription records. After gaining information pertaining to the Plaintiff's treatment for sexually transmitted disease and birth control use, the ex-boyfriend shared that information with the Plaintiff's current boyfriend and others.  Due to the invasion of privacy and HIPPA violations, Walgreens was fined $1.8 million under the theory of respondeat superior.  (Respondeat superior holds employers responsible for the actions of their employees.)  

.......just another example of the high cost of unhealthy conflict for not only families, but society as a whole.
