Hospital fulfills subpoena, gets hit with privacy suit

The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio found itself in such a predicament when it agreed to turn over a patient’s records in response to a grand jury subpoena in a criminal investigation.

The subpoena request was prompted by a criminal investigation of James Turk, a private investigator and former police officer who was indicted in June 2007 for carrying a concealed weapon and having it despite an alleged drug and alcohol dependency, according to court records.
