New Texas HIPAA court decision: The 3rd District Court of Appeals in Austin has ruled that state entities must disclose information to the public that is required under the Public Information Act, even if that information is PHI. The disclosure would be allowed under HIPAA as a disclosure "required by law," and that there's no preemption issue because both statutes can be complied with in case of such a disclosure.

More analysis from me shortly.

UPDATE: Here's the "more analysis."
