IRS Sued for Allegedly Seizing Medical Records of 60 Million Americans

IRS Sued for Allegedly Seizing Medical Records of 60 Million Americans

An unnamed California healthcare provider is suing the embattled Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and 15 agents for allegedly seizing 60,000,000 medical records belonging to “more than 10,000,000 Americans, including at least 1,000,000 Californians.”

The complaint, posted by National Review, states that IRS agents’ search warrant for financial information did “not authorize any seizure of any healthcare or medical record of any persons, least of all third parties completely unrelated to the matter.”

The medical records reportedly included sensitive private information about individuals’ gynecological counseling, sexual and drug treatment, and psychological services received.

Courthouse News Service, which first reported on the story, says Robert E. Barnes of Malibu is representing parties in the class action lawsuit.
