Smith v. Selma Cmty. Hosp., F050816

In a matter concerning the termination of doctor-plaintiff's medical staff membership and hospital privileges, grant of doctor's petition for writ of mandate reinstating a judicial review committee's decision in his favor is affirmed where, in reversing the committee's decision, the governing board: 1) wrongly concluded that the judicial review committee did not make the findings of fact required by the bylaws; 2) erred in concluding that the judicial review committee considered irrelevant and inappropriate evidence; 3) erred in concluding that the judicial review committee was obligated to accept as true the findings of two other hospitals that terminated doctor-plaintiff's privileges; and 4) misapplied the substantial evidence rule.
