In re Griffith

Court of Appeals of Ohio
585 N.E.2d 937 (1991)


The Ohio Veterinary Medical Board (Board) (plaintiff) issued formal written charges against Don Griffith, D.V.M. (defendant) after Griffith performed a surgical procedure on a kitten. The Board held a hearing during which Griffith presented an expert witness. The Board found the procedure did not meet minimum standards of care. The Board issued a written reprimand to Griffith. The Franklin County Court of Common Pleas affirmed the order of the Board. Griffith appealed, arguing the Board improperly substituted its own expert opinion for that of Griffith’s expert witness.
