Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you.

Expert:  Attorney2 replied 11 months ago.

First of all who provided the Mayor with the information in the first place? This should never have been disclosed other then to human resources. If you do not provide me any feedback I cannot assist. Each situation is different and I need to understand how and why the information was made available to share to know who is the responsible party for breaching your privacy.

Expert:  Attorney2 replied 11 months ago.

Private medical information should never have been made available to the public for any reason. If this has caused you financial damages you have a case against mayor at the very least.

Can you provide any additional information?
