Added factual findings not required to deny license to doctor out of practice for 15 years

On July 3, an appeals court in Tennessee upheld a decision by the state's medical board to deny the licensure application of a doctor who had maintained licensure in other states but had not actively seen patients during a recently-ended 15-year period. The court held that the board was not required to make an extensive factual finding for purposes of appellate review where the facts of the case were not in dispute.
