For those psychiatrists deemed "defense whores," consider the example of Dr. Philip Lindsay after DUI case of Seattle attorney Anne Bremner. Bremner, who normally defends police, ran to Dr. Lindsay after her arrest upon leaving a judge's home in Seattle after a long night of partying, and driving drunk.
Immediately upon arrest Bremner said she'd sue and the police would be sorry. Also mentioned her status as a legal commentator - which strikes us as exactly
the mouthy kind of response cops have come to expect from drunks.
More interesting however, was Bremner's defense before she regained her sanity, sobered up and apologized.
The opinion rendered by Bremner's psychiatrist, Dr. Philip Lindsay, who wrote
"was mistakenly arrested for DUI based solely upon the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury"
just like any good "defense whore" would do.
State Licensing Boards
State licensing boards are largely not worth the trouble. Consider the case of "highly respected" Beverly custody evaluator Dr. Joseph Kenan,
child psychiatrist and President of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry. In September of 2011, the California State Medical Board found insufficient evidence to bring any kind of a disciplinary action against Dr. Joseph Kenan, who admitted posting lewd photos of himself on Facebook. Dr. Kenan also seemed to condone illegal drug use. Dr. Kenan resigned as president of the American Society for Adolescent Psychiatry and is now exploring other employment options. We recommend Vivid Entertainment. Vivid is in the porn business, and owns Kim Kardashian's sex tape. Dr. Kenan may have a future with them.
