Jane Doe, a single mother living in Brooklyn, asked LAC for help when a Kings County Hospital employee illegally disclosed her HIV status following her hospitalization. The employee had no role in Jane Doe’s care, but recognized Jane because she and the employee’s son socialized. The employee searched the hospital’s electronic records without permission, learned Jane’s HIV status, and told her son. He then told his friends, and together, they harassed and threatened Jane with a pit bull. Jane was so fearful for the safety of herself and her daughter that she got a protective order. She also wanted some measure of justice, so LAC filed and successfully settled a lawsuit on Jane’s behalf, with the pro bono support of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison.
