State Supreme Court Gets Limbaugh Privacy Question

The Florida Supreme Court is being asked to review a legal question in the Rush Limbaugh case, Reuters reported.
At question is whether prosecutors violated his medical privacy during their investigation into possible misuse of prescription painkillers.
An appeals court has found that prosecutors acted legally when they seized Limbaugh's medical records. County prosecutors are investigating whether Limbaugh went "doctor shopping" to obtain multiple prescriptions for controlled drugs, a felony.
Limbaugh's lawyer, Reuters reported, has said there was no doctor shopping and that his client should not have to give up his right to privacy to prove innocence. Limbaugh has not been charged.
Limbaugh also has blamed the investigation, now on hold pending the appeal, on opportunism on the part of the Democratic state attorney, Reuters said.
