A boatload of staffers (27 of 'em!) have been suspended at the Palisades Medical Center in New Jersey, where George Clooney and his galpal were taken after ending up on the crap side of some illegal road maneuvers. Apparently the staffers' inner gossip queens couldn't resist taking a peek into Clooney's medical file, thus violating patient privacy laws. In a statement today, Clooney told reporters, "While I very much believe in a patients [sic] right to privacy, I would hope that this could be settled without suspending medical workers." Aww. You tell 'em, Dr. Ross. But weird, right? We sort of figured his previously stated opinions on privacy would trump any other concerns! Perhaps we underestimated him.
