The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit affirmed a grant of summary judgment to an anesthesiology group in a discrimination lawsuit filed by a former shareholder and board member, who alleged that her termination by the group constituted illegal gender and disability discrimination. The anesthesiologist was injured, forcing her to take time off from her duties and eventually to request an open-ended leave from her fellow anesthesiologist-shareholders.

Question of the Week

This brings up problems during reappointment in being able to assess current clinical competence. Any solutions?
