MAAS files New Lawsuit Against Board

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."
