RULING PROTECTS INTEGRITY OF TEXAS MEDICAL BOARD

A federal judge in Austin ruled against a rogue medical association and ordered that it “take nothing” in its broad lawsuit against the Texas Medical Board (TMB). In my opinion, the suit the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) brought against TMB in 2007 was one of many attempts to weaken our 2003 liability reforms. We need a strong and fair medical board to keep complaints out of the courtroom and prevent a return to the days of lawsuit abuse. In his ruling, District Judge Lee Yeakel said he found no “legal merit to any of the [AAPS] allegations.”
