Judge Orders Pharmacies to Turn Over Prescription Data; ACLU Voices Concerns Over Privacy

U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster, who is overseeing the opioid multidistrict litigation in Ohio, has ordered the major pharmacies in the proceedings to disclose 20 years worth of prescription records amid privacy questions, Legal Newsline reports.

Defendants have raised privacy concerns over sharing this data and say the states already have this information in their own tracking services. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has also cited privacy concerns with data sharing, saying it may compromise private information. The ACLU has also challenged similar requests and mandates in other states on privacy grounds.
