A judge in Los Angeles today rejected a bid by the fertility doctor of Octomom Nadya Suleman to get his medical license back.
Judge James C. Chalfant essentially denied Dr. Michael Kamrava's appeal to LA Superior Court of the California Medical Board's July decision to revoke his license to practice, partly due to his mistreatment of La Habra's Suleman.
Kamrava's attorneys had argued that action was too harsh and was reached because the public had vilified the Beverly Hills fertility doctor for implanting multiple embryos in Suleman, who was already a single mother of six when she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009.
It was the Suleman case and another involving an older woman who went on to deliver multiple babies that led to the ruling by the state medical board's six-member panel. Under the panel's order, Kamrava was allowed to re-apply for his license after a year.
