CHALLENGE OF REPORT TO THE NPDB
An appellate court in New York reinstated several claims brought by a physician who claimed he was wrongfully reported to the NPDB for resigning while under investigation. The court found, among other things, that the physician’s assertion that he resigned only after being assured by the hospital that he was not under investigation was sufficient to state a claim for tortious interference with prospective economic advantage.
