A Gold Coast sergeant who accused the Queensland Police Service of leaking his private information to the media has lost an appeal in the state's highest court.

Ricky Anthony Flori launched the legal action after personal details about a search warrant executed at his home in an 2012 internal briefing note were obtained by a journalist and published.

Mr Flori initially pursued the matter in Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, which found while the police service had breached the Information Privacy Act, none of the privacy principles applied because the material was obtained via a disciplinary or misconduct investigation.

The Queensland Court of Appeal agreed and a subsequent appeal was also dismissed on Tuesday.
