DR SHOPPING TRAFFICKING KAPUT
Still the Colonel coming at ya. (Rumpole, come home, please!)
Alert to state court practitioners: If you have a "Dr. Shopping/trafficking oxy case" it is officially dead courtesy of the 4th DCA. The decision is here.
Thanks to the JAA Broward Blog for alerting me to the story/decision. I am admittedly a little out of my element in these felony cases. As I understand it, the charge of Doctor Shopping/Trafficking arises when the prosecution avers that the client received multiple prescriptions for painkillers from multiple doctors by withholding information from the physicians who write the scripts.
Emily update: Much to the chagrin of Channel 7, Emily was torn apart by the mountains of the DR and has been downgraded to a wave. Put those picnic/boating plans back on for the weekend.
