Felony Charges for Physician in Whistle-Blower Case

Remember the saga of the 2 nurses in Texas who were fired and faced felony charges for bringing an anonymous complaint against a physician with whom they worked? One was tried and acquitted, the other had her charges dropped, but both lost their jobs? In July I posted that the TX Medical Board had filed charges against the physician. In August, the 2 nurses settled their suit against the hospital and others, asserting they’d been subjected to malicious prosecution and denied their 1st Amendment rights. This week, the state brought felony charges against the physician.

You can read the NY Times account of the story here; my original post on the nurse’s trial here.
