Texas Medical Board disciplines Doctor who provided diagnoses for Silicosis claims

The Texas Medical Board reports that Dr. Ray Harron has agreed to stop practicing medicine in the State of Texas.

Dr. Harron has been under investigation for his diagnoses of Silicosis that were used in a number of lawsuits.

The full press release can be found here.

It states that:

"On April 13, 2007, the Board and Dr. Harron entered into an Agreed Order pursuant to which Dr Harron agreed not to practice medicine in the period before his medical license expires, not to renew his medical license after it expires and not to petition the Board for reinstatement or re-issuance of his license. The action was based on allegations related to silica/silicosis litigation and Dr. Harron's determination and signature on x-ray findings of silicosis for numerous silicosis plaintiffs."
