Led the Defense of a Major Metropolitan Hospital in Federal Grand Jury Investigation for Criminal HIPAA Violations


  • Led the defense of a major metropolitan hospital and personnel targeted by DOJ for criminal HIPAA violations in connection with the publicized release of a media celebrity’s identity as a heart donor in transplant surgery conducted at client hospital; intensive investigation of hospital personnel, management and regional transplant center showed no leaks of celebrity’s personal identifying information and that recipient’s family had discovered the donor’s identity independently before revealing it on national news programs.

Result: DOJ formally declined prosecution, dropping investigation against client hospital and its personnel.
