Song Obtains Dismissal Against California Dental Board

May 11, 2022

Jianlin Song (Partner-San Francisco, CA) obtained dismissal of an Accusation filed by the California Dental Board against a dentist client.  The Accusation asserted gross negligence, incompetence and repeated acts of negligence, and sought license revocation against the client.  After 10 days of administrative hearing before an Administrative Law Judge from November 2021 to February 2022, the Judge rendered a decision to dismiss the Accusation in the entirety, which the Dental Board adopted and approved. It is very difficult and unusual to win a case before an administrative law judge against a government agency. Congratulations to Jianlin on this hard-fought win after a lengthy and uphill battle!
