Retaliation Against Physicians - Keshav Joshi, MD

Exceprt from Joshi v. St. Luke's
Opinion Missouri Court of Appeals

Plaintiff argued, in part, that he was suspended because he attempted to organize a collective bargaining group called Comprehensive Anesthesia Care. Plaintiff stated that Dr. Bashiti assigned all of the low-risk cases to himself and assigned all of the high-risk cases to Plaintiff and the other anesthesiologists at St. Luke's. The purpose of Comprehensive Anesthesia Care was to develop a more equitable distribution of the work for the anesthesiologists. In support of his response to defendant's motion for summary judgment, plaintiff also filed numerous depositions, affidavits, and exhibits.
