From the Indiana Lawyer:
Law enforcement officials who unsuccessfully brought charges against a Hamilton County addiction treatment doctor accused of overprescribing opiates have been cleared in a civil lawsuit the doctor filed against them.
Judge Richard Young ruled in favor of agents with the Drug Enforcement Agency, the city of Carmel and other defendants who had been involved in the investigation and criminal charges brought against Dr. Larry Ley and others. Young’s order issued Friday granted summary judgment to parties whom Ley claimed were responsible for false arrest, malicious prosecution, civil conspiracy, municipal liability and other causes for civil liability.
