IRS Sued for Allegedly Seizing Medical Records of 60 Million Americans

Gavel

This is wrong on so many levels. How could the judge grant the warrant? How could the healthcare provider actually provide it without a fight? And what does the IRS think it has any business in anyone’s medical records?
Check it out:

An unnamed California healthcare provider is suing the embattled Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and 15 agents for allegedly seizing 60,000,000 medical records belonging to “more than 10,000,000 Americans, including at least 1,000,000 Californians.”

The complaint, posted by National Review, states that IRS agents’ search warrant for financial information did “not authorize any seizure of any healthcare or medical record of any persons, least of all third parties completely unrelated to the matter.”

The medical records reportedly included sensitive private information about individuals’ gynecological counseling, sexual and drug treatment, and psychological services received.
