Dr. Christensen was our family doctor and we were very happy with him. The way the trial turned out was unbelievable. My wife and I went to the trial several times and we were amazed at what a rigged, planned,smear campaign it was.
First, the judge would not allow people to testify for how good of a doctor he was. Supposedly because it had nothing to do with opioids, which is what the case was supposed to be about.
The prosecutor brought in people from Medicare and Medicaid to try to make Dr. Christensen sound bad for opting out of dealing with them. They also tried to claim he didn't operate any cheaper than other doctors. Neither of those things had anything to do with what the case was supposed to be about either. If that is not smearing, I don't know what is.
He wrote prescriptions to people who lied to him. Is that his fault? Of course not! The liars sold their drugs on the street. Is that his fault? No.
There is a lot more that could and should be shown on what a corrupt, rigged trial it was. It is horrendous that they were able to do this to such a good doctor. It amazed me that the jury couldn't see through it. Is there no common sense left anymore?! I guess not. You think the hot coffee suit was crazy ... this was crazier. I have zero confidence in the justice system. There is no justice. An aggressor came in and is trying to take out a good man.
