Cassim v. Bowen

United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
824 F.2d 791 (1987)


M.M. Cassim (plaintiff), a Medicare-participating physician, sued Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Otis Bowen (defendant), seeking a preliminary injunction barring HHS from suspending Cassim from Medicare and publishing notice of Cassim’s suspension in a local newspaper without first granting him a full evidentiary hearing. HHS opposed the preliminary injunction, arguing that the ground for Cassim’s suspension was that he allegedly performed unnecessary surgery on elderly patients, endangering their health. The district court denied Cassim’s motion for a preliminary injunction. Cassim appealed.
