CLG prevails in IDFPR Medical Disciplinary Board matter.
The firm recently prevailed in an administrative law action before the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Medical Disciplinary Board.  In that matter, the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation argued that the firm’s client, a physician, should have his license suspended for failing to submit quarterly compliance reports as a condition of a prior probation.  During the administrative hearing on the matter, the Department argued that the client’s actions were “dishonorable, unethical or unprofessional conduct of a character likely to deceive, defraud or harm the public,” and sought suspension of the client’s medical license.  CLG argued that the actions were a misunderstanding of the applicable procedures, and that once the client understood the nature of the misunderstanding, he continued his compliance with the requirement.  The firm pushed for an additional probationary period.  The administrative law judge agreed, and the Medical Disciplinary Board entered the judge’s order, simply extending the probationary period.
