Andrew Speaker Sues CDC for Tuberculosis Attention

Andrew Speaker, an Atlanta lawyer, has sued the CDC for privacy-related torts arising from the attention he received back in 2007 when the CDC publicized his international travel with what the CDC asserted was a dangerous form of TB.  He contends that the publicity was unnecessary to achieve the CDC's public health goals and that it caused him harm (including ending his marriage).

We had several posts about the case at the time.
