On Monday, December 17, 2012, MAAS filed a new lawsuit against the Montana Board of Medical Examiners.
The lawsuit is a response to the Board's order entered on November 16, 2012 refusing to vacate Position Statement No. 20. The lawsuit's claims include that the statement is invalid because it was adopted "without statutory authorization, . . . outside the Board's subject matter jurisdiction and/or because it is an infringement on the role of the Legislature."
The petition for the lawsuit can be viewed by clicking here. The attachments to that petition can be viewed by clicking here and here.
