You Have the Right to Pursue Court Action Related to Your License
Loss of a license or discipline by a governing board, agency or commission does not have to be the last word. That decision may leave your career as a doctor or real estate professional in ruins or prevent you from securing licensure in the first place. Court action is often necessary.
A Judicial Review often hinges on several factors:
- Investigating the final decision
- Arguing why, as a matter of law, the decision was incorrect
- Proving that the law was applied incorrectly
- Demonstrating that the rules and regulations were applied improperly
- The record that was made below
- Questioning the application of the law
