Information on personal drug prescriptions from the Florida Department of Health somehow ended up in the hands of prosecution lawyers.  Names, addresses, phone numbers, pharmacies, and drug dosages were obtained by lawyers involved in six prescription-drug fraud cases. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida began an investigation into how the records were exposed.
