Pyle v. Woods, F.3d, 2017 WL 4931916 (10th Cir. Nov. 1, 2017).
Nov 1, 2017
Plaintiffs asserted a civil rights claim based on a warrantless search of Utah’s prescription drug database in the course of a theft investigation. On appeal, the Tenth Circuit held that a detective who accessed a state-run prescription drug database without a warrant was entitled to qualified immunity because the right to privacy in prescription records was neither absolute nor clearly established at the time of the alleged conduct.
