U.S. v. Anucha


On January 14, 2021, the United States filed a lawsuit alleging that an obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) doctor refused to provide routine medical care to a patient on the basis of her HIV status, in violation of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

On February 17, 2022 the United States filed a consent decree which requires the doctor to pay $37,500 to the complainant and a $5,000 civil penalty, take (and provide his staff with) training on the ADA and the OB/GYN care of patients with HIV, implement a non-discrimination policy, and provide reports to the department.  The court entered the consent decree on February 23, 2022.
