Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group Successfully Opposes Penal Code section 23 Request

Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group successfully opposed a Penal Code section 23 request made by the Dental Board of California before the San Diego Superior Court. The Board sought an order before the Court to restrict/suspend a practitioner’s dental license during the pendency of a criminal proceeding.

Fenton Jurkowitz Law Group successfully argued that such a restriction would be in contravention of state and federal due process requirements, as articulated in Naidu c. Superior Court (2018) 20 Cal.App.5th 300 and Gray v. Superior Court (2005) 125 Cal.App.4th 629, and the Board’s request was denied.
