For this reason, Dr. Paylan’s second and third claims fall outside the scope of this proceeding as well. Last, while I am mindful of Dr. Paylan’s request for a temporary suspension or abeyance of these proceedings, the DEA has consistently summarily revoked DEA certificates of registration based on state medical board temporary suspension orders, and it has previously denied staying its proceedings pending the outcome of a Respondent’s appeal of his state licensing authority’s suspension of his license.16 As detailed above, only a ‘‘practitioner’’ may receive a DEA registration.17 Finding that Dr. Paylan is currently without license to practice as a medical doctor, and thus is not authorized to handle controlled substances in the State of Florida, I cannot and will not recommend that these proceedings be held in abeyance, or that Respondent’s registration be suspended. I will instead recommend her registration be revoked. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Order Granting the Government’s Motion for Summary Disposition and Recommendation I find there is no genuine dispute regarding whether Respondent is a ‘‘practitioner’’ as that term is defined by 21 U.S.C. 802(21), and that based on the record the Government has established, by at least a preponderance of the evidence, that Respondent is not a practitioner and is not authorized to dispense controlled substances in the state in which she seeks to practice with a DEA Certificate of Registration. I 16 See Steven I. Topel, M.D., 58 FR 37,509(1993)(revoking Respondent’s COR based on a temporary suspension order issued by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure); see also Carmencita E. Fallora, M.D., 60 FR 47,967, 47,968 (1995) (rejecting Respondent’s argument that DEA did not have legal authority under 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3) to summarily revoke her DEA registration based on a state medical board’s temporary suspension order; See also Gary Alfred Shearer, M.D., 78 FR 19,009, 19,012 (2013) (holding that ‘‘[r]evocation of the DEA certificate is warranted even where a practitioner’s state authority has been summarily suspended and the state has yet to provide the practitioner with a hearing to challenge the state action at which he may ultimately prevail.’’ Id.) 17 In James L. Hooper, 76 FR 71, 371, 71,372 (2011), the Administrator held that ‘‘the controlling question is not whether a practitioner’s license to practice medicine in the state is suspended or revoked; rather, it is whether the Respondent is currently authorized to handle controlled substances in the state’’ and ‘‘even where a practitioner’s state license has been suspended for a period of certain duration, the practitioner no longer meets the statutory definition of a practitioner.’’ Id. (citing Anne Lazar Thorn, M.D, 62 FR 12,847, 12,848 (1997). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Nov 10, 2015 Jkt 238001 further find that the Respondent has failed to dispute this assertion. Accordingly, I GRANT the Government’s Motion for Summary Disposition. Upon this finding, I ORDER that this case be forwarded to the Administrator for final disposition and I recommended that Respondent’s DEA Certificate of Registration should be REVOKED and any pending application for the renewal or modification of the same should be DENIED. additional tax credit by Section 3303 of the IRC.
