Today, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a revised opinion in favor of the Major League Baseball Players Association, holding that the seizure by the Government of test results from Major League Baseball’s 2003 drug testing program was unconstitutional. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, the testing results were intended to be anonymous and confidential.

In August 2009, the same panel also ruled in favor of the MLBPA.

"We've been steadfast in our belief that the seizures were unconstitutional, and today’s announcement, reaffirming the Circuit’s previous ruling, is welcome news," said MLBPA Executive Director Michael Weiner.

The Government has the option of asking the United States Supreme Court to hear the case.
