A lawsuit involving a Montgomery pharmacist was thrown out Monday because, in the words of her attorney, "There was nothing to it." 

Back in October, Dee Parks, owner of Parks Pharmacy, faced a lawsuit over allegations of revealing customers' private information on the backside of a piece of paper used as a pharmacy dispensing log. 

Parks and attorney Julian McPhillips held a late afternoon news conference to talk about the ruling, which was made on May 20. McPhillips praised the court's ruling.

"To the defense of Mrs. Dee Parks, there was zero to this lawsuit, somehow she had violated the HIPPA laws, had disclosed names, different things, anything, nothing to it," said McPhillips.

"So thankful. We hope this will rectify and also hope the public will look and see that we were given a guilty plea and we had to wait to prove our innocence," said Parks.

The plaintiff in the case was Sarah Tate. Her Montgomery attorney responded as well. Virginia Lucci said:

"The court did not make a determination of fact of whether Parks mishandled confidential information. It did make a determination of law and unfortunately decided against my client."

Lucci says they will not appeal. Lucci says her client also filed a complaint with the Alabama Board of Pharmacy. WSFA 12 News was unable to reach the board for a status on that investigation.
