Prosecutors Want to Talk to Limbaugh's Doctors

RUSH LIMBAUGH's attorneys are fighting a move by prosecutors to subpoena his doctors and the doctors' staff members.
Assistant State Attorney JAMES MARTZ asked the court to allow the state to ask the doctors and staffers about LIMBAUGH's possible "doctor shopping," while the PREMIERE host's lawyers say that the testimony could lead to prosecutors hearing information that falls under doctor-patient privilege. MARTZ filed the motion on TUESDAY in the case, which centers on LIMBAUGH's alleged acquisition of Oxycontin through illegal overlapping prescriptions; LIMBAUGH has not thus far been charged with a crime.
