Did hospital chain consult with Barbra Streisand on Globe lawsuit?

Seems Steward Health Care didn't like what it was hearing about a Globe story coming out this Sunday focusing on one family's struggles with a mentally ill member who received care at several Steward facilities so it sued the Globe and the patient to try to get an advance look at the article and release the patient's medical records.

Steward lost and now it's gotten lots of people interested in just what the story will say.

    Steward Health Care

    By on

    Didn't get the reference to Barbara Streisand.

    Their lawyer either gave them

    Their lawyer either gave them bad advice or they didn't listen to the good advice their lawyer gave them. There was very little chance the judge would ever allow them to release the private medical information of a patient just to protect the company from bad press.
