New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul has filed legal action against ESPN and reporter Adam Schefter for the public release of a portion of Pierre-Paul’s medical records from last summer.
Pierre-Paul’s lawyers assert that Schefter unlawfully obtained the defensive end’s records following a July 4 fireworks accident last year, which revealed the amputation of one finger and a portion of the thumb. Schefter posted images of Pierre-Paul’s medical chart to his Twitter account, which boasts more than 4 million followers.
According to The Washington Times, the suit alleges that Schefter violated Florida statute 456.057, which states that medical records cannot be obtained or talked about with individuals not involved in the patient’s care.
Pierre-Paul is seeking more than $15,000 in damages.
