Retaliation Against Dr. Islami

    In Islami v. Covenant Medical Center, Inc., 822 F. Supp. 1361 (Dist. Ct. N.D. Iowa 1992), the Court held that the hospital had provided neither the due process rights provided by the bylaws nor the safe harbor standards enunciated by HCQIA, and therefore denied summary judgment and immunity to the defendants. Nevertheless, the court concluded that whether the hospital provided due process to Dr. Islami, and was therefore enlisted to immunity, was a jury question.
