Doctors got off lighter in UCLA snooping case

Los Angeles Times, April 14, 2008

As a group, doctors at UCLA hospitals who snooped through Britney Spears' medical files got off lighter than other staffers, according to reports from California health inspectors. At least 53 UCLA staffers--including 14 physicians--looked at Spears' medical records on the two occasions, even though they were not treating her. Eighteen non-doctors resigned, retired or were dismissed after their prying was discovered, but none of the physicians involved quit or were fired.
