Jose Rodriguez, a former Navy sailor who went missing for three days after being drugged and raped by a group of men after visiting a gay club in San Diego in June, says he was discharged under DADT only after his commander spread word around the ship of Ridroguez’s harrowing hotel room experience and the hospital treatment he sought afterward. The Navy says the loose-lipped officer has been “administratively punished,” which could very well mean he had a piece of paper inserted in his personnel file, and nothing more. Rodriguez suspects the hospital leaked his medical records to his commanding officers, violating his privacy rights. But no, Rodriguez cannot sue the Navy. There’s a law against that.
