D.O. versus Texas Medical Board

Case Study

D.O. versus Texas Medical Board


This case involved a physician accused and charged with a sexual assault offense in a matter that did not involve a patient but rather the physician’s personal life.


The physician, as a result of criminal proceedings, lost privileges at hospitals. The firm, in conjunction with the physician’s criminal attorney, who handled the criminal matter, was engaged to assist the physician in dealing with possible licensure implications and discipline.


The firm was successful in preventing the Board from temporarily suspending or restricting the physician’s license. When the criminal matter was resolved without charges, the Board was still inclined and bent on pursuing disciplinary action as to a failure to report on a licensure questionnaire regarding the status change in practicing privileges.The firm was also successful in having this claim dismissed against the physician, and the physician faced no disciplinary action.
