California Board of Chiropractic Examiners Dismisses Accusation Against Chiropractor

The Board of Chiropractic Examiners filed an Accusation and Petition to Revoke Probation against our client alleging unauthorized treatment of a minor based on a complaint by the parents. We presented evidence that one of the parents was employed by a competitor as well as affidavits of witnesses who observed the chiropractor act as a good Samaritan to aid an injured student athlete at the request of a coach. Five months after the Accusation was filed, the Board of Chiropractic Examiners dismissed the Accusation.

There were three key factors to the defense of the case:

1) Proactive efforts during the investigation and presentation of evidence to the Board of Chiropractic Examiners in advance of the hearing;

2) Independent investigation of the facts by the Deputy Attorney General assigned to prosecute the case; and

3) Careful analysis by enforcement staff at the Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
