The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Registrant’s DEA Certificate of Registration No. AC2515596 on the ground that he ‘‘ha[s] no state authority to handle controlled substances.’’ Government Exhibit (GX) 2 (Order to Show Cause) to Government’s Request for Final Agency Action (RFAA), at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3)). For the same reason, the Order also proposed the denial of ‘‘any applications for renewal or modification of such registration and any applications for any other DEA registrations.’’ Id. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:45 Apr 05, 2019 Jkt 247001 With respect to the Agency’s jurisdiction, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant is the holder of Certificate of Registration No. AC2515596, pursuant to which he is authorized to dispense controlled substances as a practitioner in schedules II through V, at the registered address of 2617 Wilson Avenue, Tifton, Georgia. Id. The Order also alleged that this registration does not expire until August 31, 2020. Id. Regarding the substantive grounds for the proceeding, the Show Cause Order alleged that on June 12, 2018, the Georgia Composite Medical Board (GCMB) ‘‘issued an Order of Summary Suspension summarily suspending [Registrant’s] Georgia medical license.’’ Id. The Show Cause Order alleged that, as a result, he is ‘‘currently without authority to handle controlled substances in the State of Georgia, the [S]tate in which [he is] registered with the DEA.’’ Id. Based on his ‘‘lack of authority to handle controlled substances in the State of Georgia,’’ the Order asserted that ‘‘DEA must revoke’’ his registration. Id. at 1–2 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3); 21 CFR 1301.37(b)). The Show Cause Order notified Registrant of (1) his right to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written statement in lieu of a hearing, (2) the procedure for electing either option, and (3) the consequence for failing to elect either option. Id. at 2 (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). The Order also notified Registrant of his right to submit a corrective action plan. Id. at 2–3 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(c)(2)(C)). With respect to service, a Diversion Investigator (DI) in the Savannah Resident Office of DEA’s Atlanta Field Division executed a Declaration on February 11, 2019, stating that on November 26, 2018, he ‘‘physically mailed the [Show Cause Order] to Registrant’s home address at 2617 Wilson Ave. N, Tifton, GA 31794, via United States Postal Service certified mail, return receipt requested.’’ GX 4 (Declaration of DI) to RFAA, at 1–2. The DI also stated in his Declaration that on November 30, 2018, he received the signed return receipt for the Show Cause Order he had mailed on November 26, 2018. Id. at 2. The DI attached to his Declaration and authenticated a return receipt from the U.S. Postal Service bearing what appears to be Registrant’s signature and indicating that the mailing was delivered to Registrant’s address on November 28, 2018. See id.; Exhibit (Ex.) B to GX 4, at 2.1 The DI also 1 The DI stated that on November 26, 2018, he mailed a second copy of the Show Cause Order to PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 attached and authenticated a printout from the U.S. Postal Service’s website showing that a package with a tracking number matching the one on the return receipt was delivered to Registrant’s address on November 28, 2018. See GX 4 to RFAA, at 2; Ex. C to GX 4, at 1– 2. I therefore find that the Government accomplished service on November 28, 2018. On March 8, 2019, the Government forwarded its Request for Final Agency Action and evidentiary record to my Office. In its Request, the Government represents that more than 30 days have passed since Registrant had been served with the Show Cause Order and that ‘‘Registrant has not requested a hearing and has not otherwise corresponded or communicated with DEA regarding the Order served on him, including the filing of any written statement in lieu of a hearing.’’ RFAA, at 1–2. Based on the Government’s representation and the record, I find that more than 30 days have passed since the Show Cause Order was served on Registrant, and he has neither requested a hearing nor submitted a written statement in lieu of a hearing. See 21 CFR 1301.43(d). Accordingly, I find that Registrant has waived his right to a hearing or to submit a written statement and issue this Decision and Order based on relevant evidence submitted by the Government and the findings below. See id. I make the following findings. Findings of Fact Registrant is the holder of DEA Certificate of Registration No. AC2515596 pursuant to which he is authorized to dispense controlled substances in schedules II through V as a practitioner at the registered address of Richard Carter MD PC, 2617, Tifton, Georgia. GX 1 (Certification of Registration Status) to RFAA, at 1. The ‘‘mail to address’’ is Richard Carter MD PC, 2617 Wilson Avenue, Tifton, Georgia. Id. This registration does not expire until August 31, 2020. Id. On June 12, 2018, the GCMB issued an ‘‘Order of Summary Suspension’’ (Suspension Order) suspending Registrant’s Georgia medical license based largely on the findings of the North Carolina Medical Board that Registrant ‘‘suffered from severe alcohol use disorder’’ and ‘‘was unable to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to patients.’’ GX 3 to RFAA, Registrant’s home address ‘‘via first-class United States mail, postage prepaid.’’ Id. He further stated that ‘‘[t]he second copy of the [Show Cause Order] that [he] had mailed via first-class United States mail, postage prepaid, did not come back to the Savannah Resident Office.’’ Id.
