Prosecutors try again in Rush Limbaugh prescription painkillers probe

UPI News Service, 09/28/2005 

Florida prosecutors plan more subpoenas in the probe of conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh for doctor shopping for prescription painkillers.

Assistant State Attorney James Martz argued Tuesday against a West Palm Beach judge's rejection of his request to interview one of Limbaugh's doctors, the Palm Beach (Fla.) Post reported Wednesday.

Martz said the earlier ruling was "absolutely inapplicable" and repeatedly emphasized to Circuit Judge Thomas Barkdull III investigators would not cross the line into privileged territory by asking about Limbaugh's health.

He said more subpoenas in the investigation would be forthcoming, the newspaper reported.

Prosecutors seized Limbaugh's medical records in November 2003, but he has managed to stave off the investigation for 19 months by arguing it is a violation of his privacy rights. He has not been charged with any crime.

It was unknown when Barkdull might rule on the prosecutor's request.
