New Albany to pay $100K for releasing police officer's medical history

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) - New Albany has agreed to pay $100,000 as part of a settlement after a city police officer's personal medical information was disclosed at a public meeting.

A civil complaint claims the officer's rights were violated when information about his medical history - including prescriptions and treatments - were read at a New Albany police merit commission meeting in 2013.

A New Albany city attorney says a mistake was made and the officials have been "trying to rectify that ever since."

The city agreed to the $100,000 settlement.
