All rulings/recommendations issued by the Division of Administrative Law Appeals between January 1, 2010 and the present regarding medical license suspensions

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Mr Quemere,
Your public records request dated October 10, 2016 and emailed to ContactANF was forwarded to me. I will process it, but I want to be sure I understand your request.
Generally, DALA's recommended decisions to the Board of Registration In Medicine (BRIM) do not concern the appropriate level of discipline to be imposed. DALA finds facts and rules on law, but makes no reference to the appropriate level of discipline. The only time a DALA decision would reference suspension is when the BRIM has summarily suspended a license and that issue is before DALA. Are you interested only in cases in which DALA addresses suspension? Please advise.
Thank you.
Ed McGrath
