Oral Argument 10/18/2006

Highlight

The preponderance of evidence standard of proof for administrative disciplinary proceedings against a physician does not violate due process or equal protection.
A party to an administrative proceeding is not denied due process because the agency performs all three functions of investigation, prosecution, and adjudication.
The determination of the appropriate sanction to be imposed by the Board of Medical Examiners in a disciplinary proceeding is a matter of discretion.
A petitioner for writ of mandamus must demonstrate a clear legal right to the act sought to be compelled and no other plain, speedy, and adequate remedy in the ordinary course of law.
Mandamus may not be issued to compel an official's discretionary acts.
