Shawish, M.D.; Decision and Order On July 12, 2018, the Assistant Administrator, Diversion Control Division, Drug Enforcement Administration (hereinafter, DEA or Government), issued an Order to Show Cause to Hisham M. Shawish, M.D. (hereinafter, Respondent), of Erie, Pennsylvania. Order to Show Cause (hereinafter, OSC), at 1. The Show Cause Order proposes the revocation of Respondent’s Certificate of Registration on the ground that he has ‘‘no state authority to handle controlled substances’’ in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State in which Respondent is registered with the DEA. Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3)). It also proposes the denial of ‘‘any applications for renewal or modification of such registration and any applications for any other DEA registrations.’’ OSC, at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3)). Regarding jurisdiction, the Show Cause Order alleges that Respondent holds DEA Certificate of Registration No. FS1974357 at the registered address VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:10 Oct 24, 2018 Jkt 247001 of 650 East Ave., Erie, Pennsylvania 16503, with a mailing address of 5572 Copper Dr., #102, Erie, Pennsylvania 16509. OSC, at 1. This registration, the OSC alleges, authorizes Respondent to dispense controlled substances in schedules II through V as a practitioner. Id. The Show Cause Order alleges that this registration expires on February 28, 2019. Id. The substantive ground for the proceeding, as alleged in the Show Cause Order, is that Respondent is ‘‘currently without authority to practice medicine or handle controlled substances in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the state in which . . . [he is] registered with DEA.’’ Id. at 2. Specifically, the Show Cause Order alleges that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine issued an Order of Temporary Suspension and Notice of Hearing (hereinafter, Temporary Suspension Order and Notice of Hearing) on April 25, 2018, and that this Order ‘‘suspended . . . [Respondent’s] license to practice as a physician and surgeon.’’ Id. The Show Cause Order notifies Respondent of his right to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written statement while waiving his right to a hearing, the procedures for electing each option, and the consequences for failing to elect either option. Id. (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). The Show Cause Order also notifies Respondent of the opportunity to submit a corrective action plan. OSC, at 2–3 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(c)(2)(C)). By letter dated July 26, 2018, Respondent timely requested a hearing.1 Hearing Request, at 1. According to the Hearing Request, ‘‘a Criminal Complaint was filed against . . . [Respondent] in Pennsylvania Magisterial District Court,’’ which Respondent ‘‘categorically denies and is vigorously fighting.’’ Id. Respondent’s Hearing Request admits that his ‘‘license to practice medicine and surgery in Pennsylvania was temporarily placed in suspension, effective April 26, 2018.’’ Id. It asserts that the ‘‘term of suspension is 180 days from April 26, 2018, at which time . . . [Respondent’s] Pennsylvania license will revert to active unrestricted status by operation of law.’’ Id. The Office of Administrative Law Judges put the matter on the docket and assigned it to Administrative Law Judge Charles Wm. Dorman (hereinafter, ALJ). 1 The Hearing Request is dated and was received less than 30 days after the OSC’s issuance. It is, thus, apparent that the Government’s service of the OSC was sufficient and Respondent’s request for a hearing was timely. PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 On July 27, 2018, the ALJ issued a Briefing Schedule for Lack of State Authority Allegations. The Government timely complied with the Briefing Schedule by filing a Motion for Summary Disposition on August 10, 2018 (hereinafter, Summary Disposition Motion). The Summary Disposition Motion is ‘‘based on Respondent’s lack of state authority to handle controlled substances.’’ Summary Disposition Motion, at 1. The Government attached to its Summary Disposition Motion the Temporary Suspension Order and Notice of Hearing that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Department of State, State Board of Medicine issued to Respondent. According to the Summary Disposition Motion, Respondent ‘‘is not entitled to hold a DEA registration’’ because he ‘‘does not have state authority to prescribe, administer, or dispense controlled substances in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.’’ Id. at 3. The Government argues, citing Agency precedent, that ‘‘even if the period of suspension is temporary or if there is the potential that Respondent’s state controlled substances privileges will be reinstated, summary disposition is warranted.’’ Id. at 3–4. Respondent timely filed its Reply in Opposition to the Government’s Motion for Summary Disposition dated August 24, 2018 (hereinafter, Reply in Opposition). Attached to the Reply in Opposition are Docket Sheets indicating that the charges Respondent is facing are indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age and corruption of minors dating as far back as 2014. Reply in Opposition, at Exh. 1. Respondent argues that the Government’s Summary Disposition Motion should be denied because ‘‘[t]he Government does not take into consideration the fact that . . . [Respondent’s] Pennsylvania medical license is set to return to unrestricted status on October 25, 2018.’’ Id. at 1. Since, he states, ‘‘his license will revert to active status as a matter of law in approximately two months, on October 25, 2018, . . . [i]t would be a waste of judicial resources, time, and expense to revoke . . . [his] DEA registration and then require . . . [him] to reapply for a DEA registration.’’ Id. at 3. Respondent argues that the Agency precedent cited in the Summary Disposition Motion is ‘‘distinguishable, as it does not appear that in any of the cases a firm date was set on which each respective respondents’ [sic] license was scheduled to be reinstated.’’ Id. [emphasis in original]. Thus, Respondent urges the ALJ to ‘‘stay resolution’’ of the Summary Disposition Motion for 90 days and to E:\FR\FM\25OCN1.SGM 25OCN1
