Charges against medical consultant Awand being dismissed

The federal government agreed today to dismiss criminal charges against self-proclaimed medical consultant Howard Awand.

Awand and personal injury attorney Noel Gage were accused of conspiring with Southern Nevada doctors to cheat injured clients and line their own pockets.

U.S. District Judge Justin Quackenbush in June dismissed the charges against Gage when the government refused to grant immunity to Dr. Mark Kabins, who is also under investigation. Quackenbush said the same order would apply to the Awand case.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is reviewing Quackenbush’s order. If it finds the judge’s order inappropriate, charges against Gage and Awand will be re-instated.
