Feds go after FL doc for ADA violation

A Florida doctor is in trouble for allegedly not providing interpreters for deaf patients. The Justice Dept. says Dr. Hal Brown of Vero Beach retaliated against Susan and James Liese for filing a lawsuit against the hospital located next door to his practice for violating ADA law and not providing an interpreter during emergency surgery. Brown told them he would no longer see them as patients--and that, says the Justice Dept. lawsuit, is not legal.
