Lawsuit Alleges Sex Assault by Maryland Doctor

Posted:
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - A West Virginia woman is suing a disgraced doctor for more than $1.5 million, alleging he sexually assaulted her at a walk-in clinic in western Maryland.

The lawsuit filed in Allegany County Circuit Court also names Dr. William Dando's former employer, MedExpress Urgent Care, of Morgantown, West Virginia. It alleges the company knew, or should have known, about Dando's 1987 conviction for a Florida rape.

Neither Dando nor his lawyer immediately responded to telephone calls and emails Tuesday from The Associated Press.

The Maryland Board of Physicians suspended Dando's license in June after he was charged with molesting another woman at the clinic in LaVale. He denies those charges.

State officials are investigating the state medical board's decision to license Dando in Maryland in 1996 despite his criminal history.
