The board also investigated whether Regan submitted false reports and billed for services not rendered. During the board proceedings, Regan argued that the board was biased and sought to dismiss board members because they were named in the sexual allegations and some members, fellow chiropractors, would “benefit economically by an adverse decision.” One board member recused himself from the case because his law firm had handled a “previous criminal matter” with one of Regan’s office members, the court’s decision said. The board of examiners concluded that Regan falsified records and supervised unqualified workers and suspended him, but the board and Regan agreed not to enforce the sanction while the court deliberated. The Court of Special Appeals refused to dismiss the case and said there was no evidence of actual bias on the part of the board members, said Cynthia Peltzman, assistant attorney general, who also was a former counsel to the State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. The Court of Appeals affirmed the lower court’s decision. Newman also said Regan was monitored for the length of the court proceedings and he received “glowing reviews of his practice.” The Court of Appeals ruled that the board must reconsider Regan’s suspension and charges because so much time has passed.
