Bernstein v. Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association
California Court of Appeal
139 Cal. App. 2d 241, 293 P.2d 862 (1956)
Dr. Samuel Bernstein (plaintiff) was a member of the Alameda-Contra Costa Medical Association (the association) (defendant). The association found Bernstein guilty of seven violations of the Principles of Medical Ethics of the American Medical Association (the principles). Under the association’s bylaws, any such violation subjected the violator to censure, suspension, or expulsion from the association. The association decided to expel Bernstein. Bernstein sued the association, arguing that the expulsion was improper. During the proceedings, four of the violations were dropped. The trial court found sufficient evidence of the remaining three violations and declined to grant Bernstein any relief. Bernstein appealed.
