#14-108 Lewis v. Superior Court, S219811.  (B252032; 226 Cal.App.4th 933; Los Angeles County Superior Court; BS139289.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment in an action for writ of administrative mandate. This case includes the following issues: (1) Do a physician’s patients have a protected privacy interest in the controlled substance prescription data collected and submitted to the California Department of Justice under Health and Safety Code section 11165? (2) If so, is disclosure of such data to the Medical Board of California justified by a compelling state interest?
