UCLA hasn't been in the news like this since Wooden was coaching basketball there. This time, though, it's good news.
A temp worker at a UCLA-affiliated medical practice looked up the patient's STD data and sent it to the temp's current boyfriend, who was the patient's former boyfriend. The patient sued UCLA for not keeping tighter grip on her PHI; UCLA defended itself, saying the temp violated law and policy, and it's not UCLA's fault when an employee goes rogue. The court agreed with UCLA, and dismissed the case.
Interesting Ashley Madison tie-in, though.
