Doctor Bennett: Victorious

The NH Board of Medicine coming out of this looking indecisive, and will be the subject of countersuits by Dr. Bennett:

The state Board of Medicine yesterday voted 4-2 to dismiss three complaints against Terry Bennett, the Rochester doctor who came under fire for comments that offended three patients.

The board also decided not to appeal a Merrimack County Superior Court judge’Â’s decision blocking the board from continuing disciplinary proceedings against Bennett. The action essentially lets stand Superior Court Judge Edward Fitzgerald’s June 30 ruling that the board violated the Rochester doctor’s constitutional rights to free speech and due process.
