    •  HIPAA shouldn't apply (6+ / 0-)

      So if FPD has any sense (questionable) this should become available.

      HIPAA doesn't always apply. Health information for on the job injuries may be disclosed to employers. The employers (unless hospitals, doctors, etc.) are not prevented by HIPAA from releasing information.

      Of course FPD could try claiming that it is prevented.

      •  To FPD it doesn't matter. To the media HIPAA (1+ / 0-)

        •  IANAL though I see what you mean (0+ / 0-)

          but come on, there are multiple pieces of information (like the surveillance video from the convenience store) that have been leaked that clearly shouldn't have been. And that's the word, leak. Like it's fucking DC on the Mississippi as of 8/10.

          I don't know if it's Ferguson PD, St. Louis County PD, Nixon's office, or Holder's office, or a partridge in a pear tree, but there's evidently been at least one insider who doesn't give a fuck for quaint notions about privacy laws. Probably more than one.

      if there really was an injury, I can't imagine that he'd refuse to allow its release to back up his story.
