Somewhere in Posen, IL is a 14-year-old girl on birth control pills. The lawsuit claims that a pharmacy technician found out that one of her daughter's classmates was taking "the pill" and told her daughter. Her daughter, being the typical middle schooler, is accused of telling some friends who told some other friends, and you know how it goes. However the harrassment was so bad that the girl has had to change schools and is suing Walgreens, the pharmacy technician, and the technician's daughter. The lawsuit even asks if Walgreen really is "The Pharmacy America Trusts."

This story came out two days ago. I've been waiting for a more in-depth follow-up from somewhere else, but I haven't been able to find it. If you know of one, send a link to
