The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine recently voted 6-0 to reverse its earlier decision and restore a KCL client’s medical license.
Previously, the Board voted to suspend the physician’s license, alleging that he posed “an immediate and serious threat to the public health, safety and welfare.” The physician then retained KCL attorney Andrew Hyams and a colleague. They represented the physician in his summary suspension hearing at the Division of Administrative Law Appeals (DALA). In October 2016, the DALA Magistrate issued a Recommended Decision in favor of the physician. In December 2016, the Board unanimously voted to accept the Magistrate’s decision, reversing its earlier vote and restoring the physician’s license.
