S-20-0575 Thomas B. Whittle (Appellant) v. State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Regulation and Licensure and State of Nebraska ex rel. (Appellee)

Lancaster County District Court, Hon. John A. Colborn

Attorneys:                   James A. Snowden, Elizabeth Ryan Cano (Wolfe Snowden Hurd Ahl Sitzmann Tannehill &                                                    Hahn, LLP, for Appellant);

                                        Mindy L. Lester, Milissa Johnson-Wiles (Attorney General’s Office, for Appellee)

Civil:                              Standard of Care; Professional Discipline; Due Process

Proceedings Below: The district court affirmed the decision of the Department of Health and Human Services, Regulation and Licensure to impose disciplinary action against the Appellant.

Issues on Appeal: The issues on appeal are whether the district court applied the correct standard of care in determining that disciplinary action against the Appellant is supported by competent evidence and conforms to law; whether Appellant was disciplined pursuant to an invalid regulation; whether evidence was improperly excluded; whether the disciplinary proceedings violated the Appellant’s due process rights; and whether the district court erred in refusing to receive Appellant’s written arguments.
