A woman diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection is suing two Ohio hospital employees for allegedly leaking her medical records online in a Facebook group called "Team No Hoes."

According to Cincinnati news outlet WLWT5, which first reported on the story, the woman is suing two University of Cincinnati Medical Center employees for more than $25,000 in damages for allegedly publishing a screenshot of her syphilis diagnosis and slut-shaming her to the Facebook group's roughly 2,300 members.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in the Hamilton Common Pleas Court, claims the two employees posted the plaintiff's records at the request of her ex-boyfriend.

"The lawsuit also claims the health system and UC Medical Center negligently supervised [one of the accused employees] and has not done enough to identify the other unknown employee allegedly involved," Cincinnati.com reports.

A request for comment from the woman's lawyer was not immediately returned.
