Armin v. Riverside Community Hospital, 052125

In an action arising out of physician peer review proceedings against plaintiff brain surgeon, the court held that: 1) a physician need not complete the internal peer review process prior to filing a whistleblower action under Health and Safety Code section 1278.5; 2) section 1278.5 prohibits plaintiff from naming individual physicians in a complaint; and 3) plaintiff's religious discrimination claims were voiced before initiation of the peer review proceedings and thus not protected under the anti-SLAPP statute.
