No Charges To Be Filed On Dumped Medical Records

Interesting twist – was wondering who they would file charges against – the doctor is dead.

Chattanooga Police said no charges will be filed in connection with the dumping of medical records at a local recycling center more than two weeks ago.

After consulting with the Tennessee State Medical Board, the city attorney’s office, the district attorney’s office and the U.S. attorney’s office, no charges will be filed against the estate of deceased cosmetic surgeon John Franklin, officials said.

The records were discarded on May 16 when a family member of Dr. Franklin cleared out a home storage area where the medical records were held following Dr. Franklin’s death.
