Bakersfield obstetrician and gynaecologist nearly two years ago he was acquitted by a Superior court jury of the felony charge of soliciting to murder a child who survived a 1973 abortion attempt Ramirez and indirectly his reputation. Were exposed to Public scrutiny in the 14 months Between his indictment and acquittal after a nine Day jury trial he was exonerated of the criminal charge thus vindicating his judgment and professional competence but an Agency of the state of California does t see it that Way and has placed him on five years probation for Quot Gross negligence a the same allegation on which the Kern trial panel said he was t guilty by its action the Board of medical Quality Assurance has. Save attorney Rod Williams who defended Ramirez by Gordon Anderson staff writer Quot taken away his medical judgment and greatly restricted his right to earn a living the state Board in staving the revocation of Ramirez s License to practice Medicine stipulated he cannot perform Saline or any abortions after a woman s first trimester 12 weeks of pregnancy or any abortions at All except in licensed facilities Williams said. Quot the Board s orders take away his medical judgment and put restrictions on him.

A it will be much costlier under terms of the state actions to Ramirez s patients to have All of their abortions performed by him in hospitals rather than in. For example his office a the lawyer also noted Quot it s discretionary by such an administrative body the state Board As to whom it acts against in a criminal Case a person is judged according to a jury s determination of reasonable doubt and certainty. While in an administrative hearing this does t have to be the Case a Williams sums up Quot there s definitely an inconsistency Between the findings of our jury and the state Board s action for instance in my closing argument to the jury i pointed out negligence could not substantiate the crime with which he was charged and the jury obviously agreed with me a yet the Board seized on that very thing on which to base its attorneys in office must release data Sacramento up a Superior court judge has upheld a major conflict of interest provision of the state political Reform Law requiring attorneys who hold Public offices to disclose names of their clients it was announced yesterday the fair political practices commission said Mendocino county judge Arthur Broaddus thursday issued a decision upholding the provision in a Case involving Ukiah City councilman Barry Wood Wood challenged the Law by refusing to disclose the names of his Legal clients who had paid him fees of $1 too or More As the political Reform act requires the Law requires that state and local officials must file annual financial disclosure statements disclosing their investments interests in real property and income Wood contended the disclosure requirements violate the attorney client privilege and invade his privacy and the privacy of his clients but Broaddus said.
