In this matter, the pharmacist was licensed to practice in the state of Michigan. The pharmacist’s license had been suspended in the state of Michigan and subsequently reinstated with the help of our firm. Thereafter, the Plaintiff applied for a license as a pharmacist in the State of Illinois. On April 13, 2010 the IDFPR issued an order adopting the facts, conclusions of law and recommendation to the Director by the Board of Pharmacy, which had adopted the Findings of Fact contained in the Report and Recommendation of the Administrative Law Judge, wherein Plaintiffs application in the State of Illinois was denied. Subsequently, the pharmacist was able to remove his Michigan restrictions and was granted an Illinois license without restrictions. Without consent by the pharmacist, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations designated on its’ website that the pharmacist had been disciplined. Our firm filed a Verified Complaint for Writ of Mandamus and in the Alternative, Mandatory Injunction in Chancery Court to compel the Director of IDFPR to remove the disciplinary action from the website. The action was granted and the pharmacist remains clear and unrestricted.
