Private Cause Of Action:
Looking for a private cause of action to address a HIPAA violation? Keep looking. The Fifth Circuit has reviewed a Louisiana Federal District Court case and found that there is no private cause of action
under HIPAA. It also has a decent list of all of the other Federal District Courts who have found the same thing. This is the first Circuit Court case on point, though.
