He is a contractor in afghanistan, she is still active duty, i want to know if i can sue her for writing these prescriptions to a person she has never met

    Answered . I have changed your practice area to military law. You may prefer to report this woman to her superiors if she is active duty. The military law practitioners will be better able to provide details.

    Answered . Odd scenario and too many facts missing. Are you active duty? Has this been reported to the government? How do you know the facts? When did this occur? Where is the Dr. Located? Where was she located when the events occurred?
