UC Ohio Slapped With $25k Privacy Civil Lawsuit

Cyber-bullying and trolldom got a new spin last year, when the medical records of a woman’s STD medical history hit the internet.

In the eyes of the beholder, this is the worst case of stalking troll behavior ever since the fictional character Golem went after Frodo and the one ring of evil, power and doom.

Two University of Cincinnati Hospital medical employees allegedly posted the woman’s test results for a sexually transmitted disease on a website named “Team No Hoes.”

The disrespect of two employees, one mentioned as her ex-boyfriend, Raphael Bradley, showed that the UC Hospital must come very far to contain the medical privacy rights of other people.

Both employees are said to have been fired over the incident.

“She was absolutely devastated. That is the most private of private medical information that was posted on Facebook and went out to a group on Facebook that had a huge dissemination” Mike Allen the woman’s attorney told WLWT News 5.

The $25K lawsuit is small compared to the amount of embarrassment and ridicule put out on blast by the two employees.

There is no word on if the UC Hospital medical will settle the case outside of court or if binding arbitration will apply in this case.
