FDA sued for monitoring employees' personal email accounts

After warning Congress that some medical devices were being approved despite possibly posing a danger to patients, a number of scientists and doctors had their personal email secretly monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to the Washington Post. Six of those scientists and doctors filed a lawsuit last week against the agency after all were either harassed or fired. Among other responsibilities, the affected employees were responsible for reviewing cancer screening devices, the Post reported. Article
