Hospital sues newspaper over FOIA foul-up

September 21, 2011

From Courthouse News Service:

VISTA, Calif. – A North San Diego County hospital district wants to stop the San Diego Union-Tribune from publishing "privileged and confidential communications" it accidentally sent to the newspaper in response to a public records request.

Tri-City Healthcare District seeks an injunction forcing the newspaper to return documents "inadvertently" sent by mail earlier this month.
