Vermont judge considers releasing papers in medical suit

From the Burlington Free Press:

Judge Helen Toor is considering whether to release secret details about a Medical Practice Board inquiry into allegations that a Vermont doctor engaged in conduct that might have exposed the public to harm, but she acknowledged that state law seems to protect the information from disclosure.

At issue is a lawsuit filed by William Wargo, a former director of the board, who claims he was wrongfully forced to resign in September 2010 because he went against the wishes of Health Department officials and authorized that investigation, along with a second inquiry into another doctor's practice of medicine.
