$3.3 Million Awarded in Wrongful Termination

After two and half days, jurors decided to award Dr. Muhammad Anwar $3.3 million in a wrongful termination lawsuit. In 1990 Anwar had a state contract to provide surgical services to inmates at Central California Women’s Facility. “As California's prison population ballooned, the doctor restricted his own private practice to provide care to the inmates, attorney Mike Ball said. Anwar formed a physicians' group to help prison officials get proper care for the inmates. But in 2005, the state agency abruptly terminated Anwar.” During the trial, Ball argued that prison officials not only breached a contract, but violated his 66-year-old client's due process rights. Ball pointed out that prison officials showed no evidence of wrongdoing by Anwar or even made a complaint against him.
