Statement to State Board of Medicine is Immune from Defamation Suit.

May 5th, 2017

In Greenberg v. McGraw, 161 A.3d 976, (Pa. Super. May 5, 2017), a three judge panel of the Pennsylvania Superior Court held that an allegedly false and defamatory statement to the State Board of Medicine by a medical assistant regarding a doctor’s fitness to practice medicine where part of a quasi-judicial proceeding and therefore subject to judicial privilege.   Thus, the lower court’s grant of Defendant’s preliminary objections in the nature of a demurrer was affirmed.  Opinion by Bender, P.J.E.,
