TB patient ID‘d as Atlanta attorney,

ATLANTA - The tuberculosis patient under the first federal quarantine since 1963 is a 31-year-old personal injury attorney who practices law with his father in Atlanta, a federal law enforcement official said Thursday.

The patient, who has a rare and dangerous form of tuberculosis, arrived at Denver‘s National Jewish Medical and Research Center for treatment Thursday, walking under his own power after flying from Atlanta with his wife and federal marshals.
