§ 5590 Malpractice Judgment in Civil or Criminal Case; Clerk’s Report

Within 10 days after a judgment by a court of this state that a license holder has committed a crime or is liable for any death, personal or property injury, or loss caused by the license holder’s fraud, deceit, negligence, incompetency, or recklessness in practice, the clerk of the court which rendered the judgment shall report that fact to the board. However, if the judge who tried the matter finds that it does not relate to the defendant’s professional competence or integrity, the judge may, by order, dispense with the requirement that the report be sent.
