We feel this was a violation of my husband privacy rights. Does anyone have an opinion? Does he have any recource?

Sadly, things like this happen. Is it right? No, it isn't and yes it very much is a violation of the privacy act. Is there anything you can do about it, not really. You could go through his chain of command and let them know that you weren't happy with how things went down the likelihood that anything would actually come of it, is slim.
