(From Quackwatch)

CBS-TV Los Angeles has reported that Leon Weathersby, D.C., accepted a $250 payment for authorizing a handicapped placard for a TV producer who responded to an ad that Weathersby had placed on Craigslist. The ad stated that that "if you do not qualify, you do not pay." [Caught. on video: Doctor asks for cash for handicapped placard even before exam CBS Los Angeles, Feb 10, 2017] Weathersby has had serious trouble in the past. In 2005, he pleaded guilty to grand theft that involved billing insurance companies for services that were not provided to patients, office visits by patients that did not occur, and/or double billings. The court ordered him to pay restitution of $219,518 and eventually sentenced him to three years of supervised probation, 365 days of electronically monitored house arrest, and participation in a counseling program. In 2006, the chiropractic board revoked Weathersby's license but said he could apply for reinstatement after 2 years. In 2012, the board concluded that he had made substantial rehabilitative efforts and placed his license on closely supervised probation for five years. In 2015, the board admonished him for falsely reporting that he had completed the number of continuing education hours required for license renewal. The board has not publicly responded to the TV broadcast, but it is safe to assume that it will take appropriate action.

Continuing request for help from Dr. Barrett
In June 2010, Doctor's Data, Inc. sued Dr. Barrett because it didnít like what he wrote about its urine toxic metals test on Quackwatch and in this newsletter. The events leading up to the suit are described at http://www.quackwatch.org/14Legal/dd_suit.html About half of the counts were dismissed in 2011, and most of the rest were dismissed last year. Dr. Barrett expects to prevail completely, but the proceedings have cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars so far. Even small donations, if sent by enough subscribers to this newsletter, will be very helpful. Contributions can be made by mail or through http://www.quackwatch.org/00AboutQuackwatch/donations.html
