AAPS Asks Court to Protect Physician Rights in Peer Review

Share:

On December 23, 2013 AAPS filed an amicus brief in support of Govindlal Bhanusali, MD with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Quoting from the brief:

The disposition of this appeal will almost certainly affect the rights of AAPS, AAPI, and their members. Under the ruling below, physicians cannot even obtain routine discovery to prove claims of antitrust violations and discrimination by a powerful hospital acting in concert with a wealthy medical group. The effect of the lower court ruling is to give a blank check to self-enrichment by a few executives, to the detriment of the public. No meaningful accountability, other than judicial review, exists to restraint wrongdoing as alleged below, and affirmance of the lower court decision would have a profoundly negative impact on the members of AAPS, AAPI, as well as the public. Accordingly, Amici have a strong interest in filing this brief.
