This program will discuss and explore the challenges defense counsel encounter when simultaneously defending a civil suit against a medical provider (nurse or doctor) and responding to a disciplinary proceeding instituted by the Colorado Medical or Nursing Board.


Some of the issues to be addressed include:

  • What if the provider’s interest in the DORA proceeding and the litigation strategy diverge?
  • Discoverability and use of evidence from one proceeding in the other.
  • Unique issues that arise in federal litigation (such as 42 U.S.C. 1983 actions).

Applicability of state peer review privileges in federal litigation.
