Another pharmacy data mining lawsuit

Reuters is reporting that "a lawsuit filed in California this week accuses national drug-store chain Walgreen Co. of unlawfully selling medical information gleaned from patient prescriptions, another front in the battle over personal information.  Unlike suits that focus on patient privacy [see the post below], the plaintiffs accuse Walgreen of depriving them of the commercial value of their own prescription information."
