Kiser v. Kambar

Endodontist—a dentist who specializes in root canals—challenges Ohio regulations that prohibit specialists from also offering general dentistry services. After the Sixth Circuit (in 2016) reverses a decision dismissing the case, the dental board rescinds the regulations. Is the case moot? Yup, says the Sixth Circuit (in 2018). We don’t think the dental board will go back to its bad behavior. And since the board gave up before you could get a court order against it, no attorney’s fees for you! (We discussed the 2016 decision on the podcast.)
