Dr. John Anderson King, the controversial osteopathic physician who generated 124 medical malpractice suits while on Putnam General Hospital’s staff between November 2002 and June 2003, has filed a lawsuit against a Roswell, Ga., law firm that once represented him.
In his complaint, King argues that when he worked at Jackson County Memorial Hospital in Florida during the 1990s, he “became award of fraudulent billing practices in connection with governmental payors such as Medicare.”
King hired Bothwel & Simpson to represent him in a suit detailing those charges against Jackson County Memorial Hospital.
In his new complaint, King notes individuals who file such complaints “are entitled to receive as much as 30 percent of the gross amount of any recovery against an entity found liable for fraudulent billing practices in dealing with governmental entities.”
