Mednik v. State Dept. of Health Care Serv., No. B193269
Trial court order denying plaintiff's petition for writ of mandate is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff's exclusion from the Medi-Cal program amounted to disbarment and he therefore has a liberty interest at stake; 2) plaintiff has not identified any aspect of the administrative appeal procedure in connection with his temporary suspension and denial of reenrollment which fell short of the demands of due process; and 3) there is no support for plaintiff's allegation that the trial court lacked the complete administrative record.
APPEAL from a judgment of the Superior Court of Los Angeles County, Dzintra Janavs, Judge. Affirmed.
