A federal judge in Portland ruled Tuesday that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency must get a warrant before accessing Oregon's pharmaceutical-monitoring database.
IRS attorneys have asserted in internal documents that the Fourth Amendment does not protect email and that a warrant is not needed to plant a GPS location tracker on a car in its owner's driveway.
"The court rightly rejected the government's extreme argument that patients give up their privacy rights by receiving medical treatment from doctors and pharmacists," he said in a statement.
"The fact people are forced to choose between protecting their health and protecting their privacy is offensive, and it's wrong," said ACLU attorney Nathan Freed Wessler.
