Attorney David Senoff leads class action against CVS

A class action suit filed Monday in Philadelphia alleges that CVS Pharmacy has made millions by selling consumers' confidential prescription information to some of the country's largest pharmaceutical manufacturers.

The complaint states: "Not content with the receipt of the substantial funds generated from the performance of pharmacy services, defendants instead chose to generate additional sources of revenue from the confidential prescription information entrusted by consumers to defendants."

In 2009, CVS settled similar claims from the Department of Health and Human Services and Federal Trade Commission. Under the agreement with the health department, CVS paid $2.25 million to settle claims related to reports that its pharmacies were throwing pill bottles with customers' personal information into open dumpsters and not destroying them.

A spokesperson for the Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, which represents the class, said that the disclosure of confidential prescription information is upsetting for people with health issues, such as HIV and psychiatric disorders.

The class seeks statutory damages and disgorgement of ill-gotten profits. The suit alleges violation of the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law. It is represented by David Senoff of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman. A link to the terms of the suit can be found by clicking here
