I will be glad to pay a bonus of $100 for a helpful opinion..
I am a medical doctor negotiating in pro per with the Medical Board of California to have my medical license reinstated from an interim suspension. I have received a proposed stipulated agreement with terms and conditions which are acceptable, but the culpability clause is problematic and may need to be negotiated further so I do not admit to anything that could result in an action against my federal DEA certificate. (I am also licensed to practice
medicine in Florida, and my DEA certificate is registered to my Florida address, which is actually my parents' address.) So far my DEA certificate is valid (I recently renewed it...) and no action has been taken against it. I have read the DEA's manual for practitioners which states the reasons for revocation of a DEA certificate. I am also negotiating with the Florida medical board, which is reacting to the California medical license suspension, to reach a stipulated settlement
Question #1) Can you refer me to literature or codes concerning the federal DEA's processes, and what I need to do, and/or avoid doing to make certain no action is taken against my DEA certificate?
Question #2) Assuming California reinstates my medical license, (which would be a revocation and stay of revocation...), can I transfer my DEA certificate (address of record) to California with a medical license with a status of revoked/revocation stayed?
Question #3) If the Florida Medical Board and I stipulate to a revoked/revocation stayed status or a suspension/suspension stayed status while my DEA certificate address of record is in Florida, will this initiate action by the DEA against my DEA certificate?
I completed a year of law school and I am somewhat proficient in legal issues for a non-attorney, so please cite all laws, codes, and regulations.
