Squashing testimonial peer review?

Peter Nordberg reports at Blog 702:

United States District Judge Ralph Tyson, sitting in Baton Rouge, has issued a temporary restraining order barring the American Association of Neurological Surgeons from sanctioning a Louisiana neurosurgeon for testifying as a plaintiff's expert witness in a Florida malpractice case. The AANS wants to suspend the neurosurgeon for two years because he "demonstrated a lack of adequate subject matter knowledge and acted as an advocate for the plaintiff and the plaintiff attorney rather than as an unbiased witness."

The underlying news story, from the Advocate of Baton Rouge, is here.
