Administrative Law Judge Jeff Masin has recommended that the notorious abortionist Steven Chase Brigham should have his last remaining medical license revoked and pay a fine of $30,000 along with other costs after hearing evidence that Brigham engaged in a pattern of deception, engaged in illegal late-term abortions, and operated in Maryland without being licensed in that state.

Judge Masin stated in his 86-page decision, “He has suffered license revocations. He has run afoul of the licensing authorities in New York, Pennsylvania and Florida. He has a conviction for failure to file income taxes. And here, he has demonstrated a willingness to play fast and loose with the law in Maryland.”

Masin when on to say, “. . .However, it seems that Dr. Brigham has finally cut enough corners.”

The final decision will be made by the New Jersey Board of Physicians. If they vote to revoke Brigham’s license as recommended, he would be forced to shut down his eight New Jersey abortion facilities operating under the American Women’s Services banner since New Jersey law requires that only licensed providers can operate medical clinics.

However, Brigham’s nine other abortion facilities in Virginia, Florida, and most recently in Delaware would not be affected by revocation of his New Jersey medical license because they allow non-licensees to own abortion facilities.

According to NJ.com,the judge said that given Brigham’s unwillingness “to carefully follow the licensing rules and regulations that govern his practice of medicine,” suspending his license is not punishment enough, according to Masin’s decision.

“The record of Dr. Brigham’s past conduct is troubling,” Masin wrote. “He has run afoul of the licensing authorities in New York, Pennsylvania and Florida. Indeed, part of the Florida discipline, similar to the current case and the violation of Maryland law, involved his practicing in that State in violation of the rules governing eligibility to practice…And here, he demonstrated a willingness to play fast and loose with the law in Maryland that governed his right to practice medicine.”

Although Masin concluded Brigham should no longer be allowed to practice medicine in New Jersey, the judge dismissed several charges against him including one at the heart of the state’s case.
