In the decision, Justice Goodwin Liu wrote, “[the medical board’s] review of these records was justified by the state’s dual interest in protecting the public from the unlawful use and … protecting patients from negligent or incompetent physicians.”
The case revolved around the state’s Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System (CURES) which requires that every prescription of a Schedule II, III or IV controlled substance be logged into a database.
A medical board investigator looked at a CURES prescriber report involving hundreds of patients, eventually bringing charges against the internist.
