Case Conclusion Date: 03.02.2007
Practice Area: Licensing
Outcome: Reversal of Suspension of Medical License
Description: Significant Administrative Law opinion in Oregon assigning error to the practice of allowing administrative agencies to order competency exams without "due process" and proper hearings. The court also determined that these orders are not final orders in contested case hearings. This has caused significant calls for reform in the Adminsitrative Law process in Oregon.
