At least 10 more doctors to be reviewed for Madison sick note incident

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's Medical Examining Board is reviewing at least 10 more doctors who handed out medical excuses to Madison teachers while they protested at the State Capitol in February.

State officials say they'll consider formal investigations, after the Wisconsin State Journal said the doctors in question listed an e-mail contact that the Madison School District found to be fraudulent.

Last month, the Medical Examining Board reprimanded 7 doctors and gave warnings to 2 others, for handing out sick notes to protestors who lined up for them.

A number of schools throughout the state were closed from 1 to 4 days while teachers protested against the new law which virtually eliminated their collective bargaining privileges.

The State Journal analyzed Madison school records which showed that 570 employees submitted medical excuses for at least one of the four days the schools were closed.
