The lawsuit filed by a man who was the subject of a 2007 international tuberculosis scare was revived by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The appeals court reversed a lower court’s decision to dismiss his lawsuit claiming that officials with the Centers for Disease Control revealed his private medical condition to publicize the possibility that the disease could be spread worldwide. A lower court had dismissed his lawsuit on the grounds that the plaintiff failed to present sufficient evidence that the CDC was to blame for the privacy breach.
