Anna Nicole's Doc Challenges Search Warrants

10/17/2007 8:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, Anna Nicole Smith's former psychiatrist, were in a Los Angeles County courtroom challenging the validity of a search warrant used in last Friday's raid on her Studio City home.

The home of Dr. Erosovich was one of several locations raided by state officials as part of an investigation into doctors who prescribed medications to the former Playmate who died in Florida on February 8th.

Erosovich's lawyers challenged the search warrant as "overly broad" and requested the return of some of the good doctor's personal items, including CDs and DVDs that had been seized in the raid.

Erosovich's attorneys also made arrangements to view all of the seized materials. We've learned the judge may appoint a Special Master to the case. This person ensures there was no "inappropriate seizure," and analyzes the material seized to determine what is protected by doctor/patient privilege and what is not.

In addition, the judge signed several additional search warrants -- what those are for, we don't know. They'll be back in court December 5.

Several agencies conducted searches last week in connection with the Medical Board of California's investigation into whether Anna Nicole was overprescribed medication.

I never used OP in my post so don't ask me what it means. Probably from some Antinoid post with their crazy code busting myth--

No wonder you are alone in paradise--you are not there but probably on a deserted island, who cares anyway?

You are one of the most vicious here.

Just as a follow up to my earlier comments on the unintended consequences of over-zealous government hunting of Doctors and 'Doctor shopping' Patients:

Raids Highlight Prescription Drug Debate
Tuesday, October 16, 2007

By PAUL ELIAS, Associated Press Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — California authorities who raided the homes and offices of two of Anna Nicole Smith's doctors last week made the highest-profile use yet of a controversial state database that can detect suspicious patterns of prescriptions.

But the raids also reignited debate about the technology. Law enforcement officials say it's a useful tool for fighting prescription drug abuse. Many doctors and privacy advocates say patients are suffering because the government crackdown invades people's privacy and interferes with the doctor-patient relationship.

"What we have going on right now is a society wide witch hunt," said Dr. Frank Fisher, who was recently exonerated following a seven-year court battle that included murder charges, malpractice suits and a medical board investigation into the deaths of several patients for whom he prescribed painkillers.

Some patient advocates believe that allowing investigators to track physicians' prescribing habits risks hurting patients who genuinely need the drugs.

"These databases chill prescribing," said Siobhan Reynolds, who founded the New Mexico-based nonprofit Pain Relief Network after her terminally ill husband was denied large doses of pain killers in the days before his death. "If we had the resources, we would try to shut down every one."

California Attorney General Jerry Brown and other law enforcement officials dismiss such claims and contend the system is needed to curb prescription drug abuse.

Just the Facts,

All of my posts are meant to be tongue-in-cheek. I throw barbs at both sides, for all their silliness.

I picks on Swims, too, but he knows I'm just busting him and he takes it in the spirit of humor. Unlike some, who are far too sensitive, he is able to divorce himself from the argument long enough to write back (using another moniker) to express his appreciation of the humor.

Scroll up a bit and you will see I threw a barb at Lucas, too, about being a racist. Read the entire post and you will see sarcastic nature of the post and realize it is a joke. If you fail to see the humor or say my type of humor is tasteless, well, that's your prerogative.

To call me vicious is your prerogative, too.

(Page 13 of 13)Previous 15 Comments | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 181. Howard, Larry, the doctors................these people are all guilty of adding to the death of Anna Nicole. And just what is up in the Bahamas? Shane Gibson, Gibson's father, his mother, all working for Howard. Bribes and smoochey pictures. Dirty hands all around. Lincoln Bain is a thug. Did you see the video of him at the church before Anna's funeral? I doubt the good people of the Bahamas enjoy seeing these people in the limelight. The Gibsons and Bain are shaming their country. Has there been too much dirty dealing for Daniel's inquest? I sure hope not. That young man wanted to see his mother and is new baby sister, but instead loses his life.

BREAKING NEWS !

Six People Arrested at KFC

Today a manager from Kentucky Fried Chicken in bum f*ck egypt had to call authorities when six sick individuals parading as 'normal' people tried to order Fish and tarter sauce at the restaurant.. The manager claims that the indivuals became disguistingly hostile and aggressive when his chicken establishment could not fill their orders.

Three of the six individuals claimed to be attorneys and requested that everyone sign confidentiality agreements. When the manager, employees and patrons refused the the attorneys started to threaten legal action. One of the individuals, descibed as a very ugly woman threw chocolates at customers and showed porn pictures. Another older woman, also described as fat and even uglier threw pill botles and liquids at the employees and manager.

Eye witnesses stated that once the police arrived one of the attorneys continued to take pictures even after the police asked him to put the camera down. The police confiscated the camera after a minor scuffle which ended when the attorney's pants fell down to his ankles.

The police have called in the FBI and Homeland Security after a strange Duffel Bag was found in the vehicle driven by one of the attorneys. There is no word what was discovered in the duffel however one of the witnesses at the scene stated that the arresting officers were visably shaken by it's contents and could not control their laughter. According to officials, it is too early in the investigation to determine if these individuals are indeed terrorists or your everyday run of the mill nuts.

I know people who are in chronic pain & their doctor writes prescriptions in their name when they need them. Of course they don't have enough to fill a dufflebag & don't get them for other people.

I think the guy swimming in the ocean is a drug addict or drug dealer & worried his supply will be cut short. He needs to just chill out.

Because the VOLUME of prescriptions that doctors prescribed for Anna in her name and in the names of others could easily be considered at the very least contributing factors to her death these raids would almost assuredly be allowed by the courts. There probably won't be anything found that will be the equivalent of a "smoking gun" and the doctors likely will receive little or no significant penalties.
