APNewsBreak: Octomom Doc's Hearing To Be Continued

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Medical Board of California is opting not to enact a judge's recommendation that would allow "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor to keep his license.

Instead, the state's medical licensing agency is slated to decide whether to revoke Dr. Michael Kamrava's license, or take other action at a future meeting.

On Wednesday, the board rejected a recommendation from a judge to revoke Kamrava's license, but stay the action and place him on probation for five years.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor testified to implanting Suleman with 12 embryos - six times the norm for a woman her age - before the pregnancy that resulted in octuplets. He is also accused of mistreating two other patients.

The next board meeting is scheduled to be held in Los Angeles in May.
