Former Premier Dr Ewart Brown has filed a civil lawsuit against the Bermuda Government’s Attorney General.
The writ was filed in the Supreme Court on December 23 by Forensica Legal and lists Dr Brown, Bermuda Healthcare Services (BHCS) and the Brown-Darrell Clinic as complainants and the Attorney-General as the respondent.
When contacted by Bermuda Real on Saturday, Dr Brown indicated that he will have a statement once cleared by his attorneys.
This is the latest lawsuit in a string of legal actions related to the ongoing police investigation that has cost taxpayers millions with no charges drawn to date.
Police raided both clinics in February 2017 as part of the investigation into allegations that they ordered unnecessary CT scans/diagnostic imaging to boost profits.
Both Dr Brown and Dr Mahesh Reddy, medical director of BHCS, have denied any wrongdoing in relation to the alleged overuse of medical scans of patients.
A group of patients at the clinics also launched a legal action over the seizure of their records without their consent.
The medical records of 75 patients were sent overseas for review by two independent doctors last year, when the Supreme Court agreed to a protocol intended to maintain the anonymity of the patients.
The former Attorney General, Trevor Moniz also filed a lawsuit in Boston against Lahey Health in 2017, alleging a conspiracy with Dr Brown to conduct excessive CT scans.
The case was ultimately dismissed by Judge Indira Talwani of the US District Court in March 2018.
Meanwhile, the investigation continues at a cost of $6 million to date and counting.
