← Religious Doctor Denies Medicine for HIV Positive Gay Man

It seems as if the hospital is being sued, and rightly so. Unfortunately it appears as if this "doctor" is not being sued in her personal capacity, so she will probably get off scot free in the money department.

This is a "problem" the world over. The institution/employer is usually cited, but very often the person himself/herself is not because the institution has the deep pockets. And lawyers will be lawyers :-)

I would have liked to see her being held responsible in her personal capacity. I do hope that the relevant authorities scrap her medical license completely and that she gets fired.

I do not understand the references to the police and criminal charges. Criminal charges for what crime? What am I missing?
