Trial opens in LA weight-loss doctor's alleged bogus billing scheme
LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- A prosecutor told a Los Angeles jury Wednesday that the operators of the now-defunct 1-800-GET-THIN ad campaign used fabricated sleep studies to convince insurance companies to pay out tens of millions of dollars for weight-loss surgery, but the defense countered that the defendants were innocent victims of a con man who routinely falsified test results. Former weight-loss doctor Julian Omidi, 53, of West Hollywood, and Dr. Mirali Zarrabi, 59, of Beverly Hills, face multiple federal counts alleging mail and wire fraud, false statements, money laundering and aggravated identity theft stemming from GET THIN's Lap-Band surgery and sleep study programs between May 2010 and March 2016. The Lap-Band weight-loss-surgery business was widely advertised on Southern California freeway billboards, radio and television, attracting people desperate to shed excess pounds. But before insurance companies would pre-approve the $100,000 surgery, prospective patients had to show they suffered from certain afflictions, including sleep apnea.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Gavin Newsom signed two laws on Wednesday that aim to protect the privacy of abortion providers and their patients, declaring California to be a "reproductive freedom state" in contrast to Texas and its efforts to limit the procedure.One law makes it a crime to film people within 100 feet (30 meters) of an abortion clinic for the purpose of intimidation -- a law abortion rights groups believe to be the first of its kind in the country. The other law makes it easier for people on their parents' insurance plans to keep sensitive medical information secret, including abortions.
