Remember the Metro-North commuter train wreck north of NYC in December? Today' NYT has an article saying that the conductor (who caused the wreck) had previously undiagnosed sleep apnea. Given HIPAA and various privacy laws, how can this disclosure be legal?

I thought that medical information was supposed to be private.
How is it, then, that the Times can report on medical diagnoses?
