U.S. Supreme Court Takes Medical Board Case

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear, North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners v. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), to determine whether a federal agency has the right to intervene in state medical licensure board decisions.  The U.S. Court of Appeals previously ruled in favor of the FTC -- essentially stating that state medical licensure boards are subject to antitrust laws.
