Is Your Doctor Running a Pill Mill?

The dramatic rise in prescription narcotics use -- and the subsequent increase in overdose deaths -- has led to a spate of lawsuits around the country targeting doctors for malpractice or running pill mills. But legal experts say the case of one family physician in Henderson, Nev., stands out. Dr. Kevin Buckwalter has turned the tables, filing a lawsuit against the parents of a young woman who died from an overdose of narcotics that he prescribed. Buckwalter's suit accuses John and Maggie DeBaun of abusing the legal process, intentionally inflicting emotional distress and interfering with his ability to do business by filing a medical malpractice case against him for the death of their daughter.  Marshall Allen, ProPublica  08/26/2011
