Doctor asks Supreme Court to hear his hospital-suspension case
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Dec. 5, 2005
A California physician has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear his case concerning the suspension of his hospital staff privileges.
Obstetrician-gynecologist Gil Mileikowsky, MD, was told in November 2000 that his privileges had been summarily suspended at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center in the San Fernando Valley. Dr. Mileikowsky said he had not been given fair due process after he was suspended.
The Court of Appeal of California, Second Appellate District, ruled against Dr. Mileikowsky. The Supreme Court of California this year denied his petition for review.
