Nevada dentists allege board pushed coercive stipulation agreements

The Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners is under fire from dental licensees in the state, who accuse their outside legal counsel, attorney John Hunt, of coercing them into giving up legal rights in the face of complaints. The grievances, aired at this month's meeting of the Board of Examiners, allege that Hunt pressured the dentists under duress into entering stipulation agreements, and warned them off defending themselves against complaints on threat of license revocation. The board maintains that every dentist entering into stipulation agreements did so freely and without influence.
