    Answered . As previously stated, it depends on circumstances. If you feel you have been damaged by the disclosure, I would recommend contacting a local attorney to discuss the specifics of your case. You would then be able to determine how you should proceed.

    Answered . If a healthcare provider did this it might disclose some protected information under HIPAA, but there is no cause of action that an individual can bring for the violation. If a lawyer did this I guess it might be a violation of private information, but I do not see where any damages have occurred. IT is hard to be more specific because we are not sure who you are talking about.
