Marc, On Jan 10 of this year you answered a question of mine

Hi Marc, On Jan 10 of this year you answered a question of mine and I would like to follow up with you - as you were correct and insightful. An abusive ex spouse, who is an attorney, is using the legal system to continue his abuse - in particular the use of depositions - you were very helpful in suggesting the use of a Cal Code Civ Proc § 2025.420, to file a Motion for Protective Order.We still have that option however we don't want to aggravate the judge who has granted the abuser 6 more hours of deposition time. Nor do we want to seem as if we are hiding anything... So here is the situation - while they have demanded reams of financial disclosure from my side (Because he is now pursuing full custody and legal fees) which have all been provided at the previous depositions - they have not provided - or produced any of the financials that they are required to produce.Is there a way to make the deposition contingent on their producing their paperwork and/or narrowing the scope of this fishing expedition... or cancelling it altogether?It is also clear that the other side is doing everything it can to drive up the cost of this litigation since he, as a partner at a law firm, has nearly unlimited resources legally.

The link to the question is as follows:https://goo.gl/0UfQtEI have put in a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights soon after I asked my question. They still have not come up with resolution. I have called them several times to get a status update and my calls are not returned.This is very disappointing. Is there any further action you can recommend to motivate them to do their job?

I was in New Orleans last spring, and a conversation was video-taped without my permission. We were in a private residence with about 12 people. I asked the video tape be deleted. I asked that person again over the summer in Alaska to delete the video. I was at a wedding in Australia over Christmas, and that video taped conversation was part of a wedding video shown to 70 people. The taping was done with a cell phone. Was the taping and showing legal since I did not give permission in the first place and asked more than once to have it deleted?

This questions pertains to violation of HIPPA and the

This questions pertains to violation of HIPPA and the Privacy Act. I was diagnosed with concussion Feb 1 by a physician at a reputable hospital following head trauma with loss of consciousness. Concussion is defined as a medical condition due to head trauma which results in both physical and cognitive symptoms affecting thinking, perception, emotion, mood, behavior, speech pattern and communication. Onset of the concussion symptoms had never presented before the head trauma/concussion. Medical sources state that it can take weeks, months, or up to a year to recover from concussion. Due to impending important deadlines I returned to full activity prior to concussion recovery. I was unaware that all medical sources state that doing so will result in worsening of concussion symptoms. I returned to the ER per discharge instructions to do so if concussion symptoms worsened. Unfortunately I went to a different hospital due to its closer proximity to my son who would have to pick me up on discharge. This hospital inexplicably refused to acknowledge the diagnosis of concussion reporting I self-diagnosed the concussion and it was only a belief after a fall. I offered discharge instructions with the diagnosis of concussion, my husband verified I had been diagnose with concussion reporting he was present when the concussion was diagnosed (he also offered to obtain a copy of the medical record verifying concussion, but was told by the hospital staff they did not want it). The hospital further erred by stating I did not have a concussion based on a negative CT-scan result at the hospital. All medical sources state a negative CT-scan is typical in cases of concussion and a concussion cannot be ruled out on this basis. Because the hospital ruled out concussion they were unable to explain cognitive symptoms which are common to concussion. Though the DSM manual by the American Psychiatric Association states that no mental illness/personality disorder can be diagnosed if the individual's impairment is due to a medical condition such as concussion, I was temporarily involuntarily detained in a psychiatric ward. The TDO hearing resulted in the special magistrate ruling I did not meet the criteria for TDO, the case was dismissed, and no treatment of any kind was deemed necessary and none ordered. Despite the court's order that no treatment was required nor ordered, the hospital released information to 'treating providers'. I requested an Accounting of Disclosures to attempt to find out who information was released to in an attempt to stop the spread of what was an erroneous event and incorrect diagnoses (I was evaluated and diagnosed while experiencing concussion symptoms now complicated by emotional trauma and side effects from the abrupt cessation of all prescribed medications). The hospital has refused to provide a complete Accounting of Disclosures at first saying the information was sent only to treating providers and this information was not required to be included in the Accounting of Disclosures. I noted there were no 'treating providers' as the court ruled no treatment was required and none was ordered. The hospital then responded (quote) "well that's just what we just typically do" in regard to the release of information. I reminded them this was an erroneous involuntary TDO, reminded them by the court ruling there were no "treating providers" informed them the information released fell under "special protected information" and they were in violation of HIPPA and the Privacy Rule. The hospital still refuses to release the complete Accounting of Disclosures.In addition, the attending ER physician reported one of three behavioral health diagnoses reported for rule-out by the consulting psychologist. Per the medical coding rules and regulations, no rule-out diagnosis can be reported as a definitive diagnosis unless the patient is admitted to that hospital. I requested the diagnosis be removed, citing sources pertaining to regulations of ER Visit diagnoses, but received no response from the hospital.Note that throughout the entire TDO process I was never informed I was being psychologically evaluated; I was only evaluated by an unlicensed student intern without observation by the supervising LCSW. The CSB never personally interviewed/evaluated me as required by Virginia State Mental Code. The CSB also acted as petitioner for the TDO. As petitioner he failed to report anything I said or did which would warrant involuntary TDO. This is also against Virginia State Mental Code. I did not meet the criteria for temporary involuntary detention.Though the involuntary detention is beyond the 2-year period to file a lawsuit (I was unable to obtain a lawyer as all but the firm representing Creigh Deeds reported emotional trauma was too difficult to prove), information pertaining to the Accounting of Disclosures, HIPPA violation, and report of a rule-out diagnosis for an ER visit is ongoing and recent.
