USD School of Law Alumna and CPIL’s Bridget Gramme '03 (JD) Interviewed by NBC San Diego

San diego (May 10, 2017) - University of San Diego (USD) School of Law alumna and Center for Public Interest Law’s (CPIL), Bridget  Gramme, ’98 (BA), ’03 (JD), was interviewed for and quoted in a NBC San Diego article that reported on a San Marcos chiropractor who has been accused of sexual battery.

According to the article, John Michals was arrested on April 25, facing one count of sexual battery, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO). Since then, five more victims have come forward and accused the chiropractor of inappropriately touching them. The victims' rights advocates are frustrated after learning that Michals' State of California Board of Chiropractic Examiners license had not been suspended.

"I think in this case an interim suspension order makes the most sense," Gramme said. "Because this is an accusation that is very serious and can really involve irreparable harm with sexual assault with a patient."

Gramme says that the board could have sought to suspend Michals' license at his arraignment. NBC 7 has learned that the Attorney General is now looking into the case.

 “In a case like this where it’s a serious accusation and you have multiple victims coming forward it’s an important public safety matter to be able at least temporarily revoke somebody’s license until the process can happen,” Gramme added.
