I am moving someones post from yesterday up because this is important. We are in fear of losing Dr. Jones. He needs our help. My kids need him and we all need him. If they take his license, all of the LLMDs will go down quickly. Please make an effort to do whatever you can. He is such a sweet and gently man who cares about us all! Rather than retire he is fighting for us! Please see below:

HELP! Urgent Update from Dr. Jones - Please distribute!!!

Dear Friends,


Your tremendous expression of support continues to overwhelm me. I cannot put into words my heartfelt joy, appreciation and love for you all. The charges against me have provided great challenge, but I remain optimistic. I know that my approach to treatment is sound, and maintain my belief that justice ultimately will be served. I also have tremendous confidence in my legal team, which has been working diligently to enable me to prevail.

We have just entered the second year of legal hearings, however, and my legal defense fund is nearly depleted. My ability to mount an appropriate defense, from a financial perspective, is now in jeopardy (legal expenses have been averaging $1000 per day), and will depend on my ability to continue to meet the high cost of this lengthy and complex process. I currently need a fund of $150,000, to be in a position to fight the charges. In order to achieve this, I need your financial backing, in the form of as generous a donation as your circumstances will allow. It pains me greatly to have to ask this of you, knowing the tremendous burdens that Lyme disease already has imposed on so many. It is critical, however, that I retain my license, in order to preserve timely access to appropriate, comprehensive treatment for the children who are so very ill.

Checks should be made out to the ``Charles Ray Jones, M.D. Legal Defense Fund'' (write ``gift'' in the memo section), and mailed to the CRJMDLDF c/o George Heath, III (CPA), 26 Fairlawn Drive, Wallingford, CT 06492.

Alternatively, credit card donations to the legal defense fund may be made through a PayPal account: www.DefendLymeDoctors.com

Thank you for your continued support, your prayers and good wishes. Regarding your many letters of encouragement, please know that I read and appreciate every single one.


Sincerely,

Charles Ray Jones, M.D.

Dr J is an amazing man. Apparently he says that he could not sleep if he turned someone away who he could help.

He helped my son and I am indebted to him. I never thought I would send money to medico-legal lawyers. But we in the lyme community cannot afford to lose this man.

Any other support groups that would like to follow National Capitol Lyme's example and raise money for Dr. J. by sponsoring a special shopping day? Nat Cap raised around $1000! See their recent thread on General Support.

if we each started a mini-campaign among our own close circles, neighbors, friends ..
and coordinated small "collections" with a note on the situation, we could fund this rather quickly and painlessly.

it's more than necessary.

Individual contributions are important. I also think it would really help us get going if we can do more fund-raising for Dr. J. as part of a group such as Nat Cap Lyme with their shopping day. Sometimes people get energized for fund-raising around the funniest things. One group (non-Lyme)I've heard about is sponsoring their men-folk in a Wax-a-thon. The men get bids to have portions of their legs waxed and the women sit back and chuckle at the men's "wimpiness" about how much it hurts. The good cause receives the proceeds.

Since last year my family has collected soda cans from family members and donated the money to Dr. Jones. It adds up. Recently we made the decision to forgo our charitable contributions to other sources and to church and earmark that money to Dr. Jones fund. I wish we could do more, but that is it for now, but it is something each month.

Hope,

Thanks so much for sharing this imaginative and practical way of personal fundraising for Dr. Jones. That is really empowering!

Reserving refunds from recylcable bottles for Dr. Jones would also be something that many of us could consider doing.

I am coordinating this year's Walk Against Lyme Disease. My pledges raised will go to Dr. Jones' defense fund (unless they are designated to go to a non-profit, then they go to LymeAid4Kids).

Can you walk around the block? Then you can do this fundraiser with us. We need people all across the country to walk!

Please sign up at
Walk Against Lyme Disease

Walkies,

We were at the trial on May 31st, and saw Dr Jones the next day. He said there are 5 more meetings. This was just the close of one phase of the trial. [cussing]

I certainly think that Dr. Jones needs to be supported but why does legal defense cost 1,oo0 dollars a day?. Doesn't that seem excessive? Or is that the going price? Maybe someone can update me (I haven't read every post here).

Last I heard the trials were over and they would let us know in Sept. as to whether he was considered guilty or not. I couldn't understand that delay either. Can someone explain the legal process to me.....Legal process 101? :-) Who is drawing out this almost...not even a misdemeanor... into an OJ Simpson trial? Is it that more money is needed for the future charges against him? Is all the money being used for the proposed purpose of helping Dr. Jones? There just seems to be alot of questions that we need to answer and not just shovel out the money. I am not at all questioning the need to keep Dr. Jones in operation. He is most loved and valuable.

1. All of the money goes to Dr Jones' legal defense.

2. why is this process being dragged out? Because the CT medical board is intent upon driving him out of practice.

3. Dr. Jones is waiting to hear back from the Board about the first case the Board is using to persecute him. If he survives that charge they have others lined up to keep him tangled up and to drive him into bankruptcy.

4. If we lose Dr. J- which is unthinkable- without fail medical boards in other states will successfully drive less well known LLMD's out of practice.

Dr. J is staying and still standing ONLY because he cherishes children with Lyme and wants to give them a chance to live.

He deserves every last penny every last one of us has to give him.

Seems as if there should be some way to publicly challenge this obvious misuse of the law. I'm wondering what some of these other charges are and if they are senseless and should be thrown out of court? I think I'm going to try and start looking into this a bit deeper

daystar-

dr. jones is not being prosecuted in a court of law. If he were, the charges would have been thrown out long ago.

Unfortunately for him and for us, he is being persecuted by a medical board that makes up its own rules as it goes along and that is accountable to no one.

if you live in CT or you know anyone there, one place to start to is write/have them write the governor to protest this travesty.

And when you're mailing that letter, how about sending a check of whatever amount you can afford to Dr. Jones? He needs your support.

Dr. J was found guilty of several charges, including diagnosing Lyme in a patient who basically didn't meet CDC criteria.

The panel has made a recommendation for penalty, with full hearing of the board on Tues. Dec. 18. The public is invited to this hearing!

I was just made aware of this dr's situation. I read the story and the bottom line is, he dx people by phone. Whether it be lyme, cancer, bronchitis, no dr should ever dx or give meds to a patient they haven't seen.
Do I think he needs to be charged, yes, but not as hashly as he is. He made a mistake, but that could have been a mistake that may have killed someone.

Ultimately it is the political process which needs to be influenced. State representatives need to be influenced to recognize lyme and the science. A similar way the IAOMT has influenced the FDA to change its position on mercury amalgam safety. The IAOMT has used science, court, legislative persistence, and some dedicated congressional leaders to affect change.

Lyme has to be very much on the minds of those in Connecticut. It might be a good idea to know which candidates support chronic lyme as a condition and what can be done to support them. Also, how to present the science so it can speak volumes.

So one could look at these medical boards similarly to the FDA.

In the mean time, I hope my little bit helps Dr. Jones continue to help us.

I just tried to make a donation via paypal to Dr. Jones. It did go through but did not allow me to specify it as a "gift" as I was told to do.

There was no "box" or any other instruction as to how to offer any additional info.

I have a funny story about donating to Dr. J.

I donated once and some time later thought about donating again, however I felt a bit reluctant because my husband says, "What's this expense for?" and I had already given once. But I kept the addressed envelope on my desk and kept bumping into it.

Finally I decided to donate again, but I wanted to look in my check register first. I thought I might have sent a second check and forgotten it.

When I looked, I found out this would be my 5th check!! Where was "I" when I sent off those other 3 checks? Was this Lyme brain? I can understand forgetting one check, but three? Was my better self sending checks that my practical self didn't know about?

I still don't know the answer, but it was for a good cause and my husband apparently hasn't noticed yet.

March 17, 2008

Dear Friends,

I am writing once again to update you regarding the status of the charges which have been brought against me by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH).

As most of you know, on December 18, 2007, the hearing panel made recommendations for sanctions that would have severely restricted my ability to treat Lyme patients, and would have set a dangerous precedent for other Lyme-treating physicians.

Those of you who were fortunate enough to hear Attorney Pollack's oral argument in response to the hearing panel's proposed decisions and sanctions (``Proposed Memorandum of Decision''), or who read the transcript published in the Lyme Times (Winter Edition), can speak to his professionalism and keen grasp of key issues pertaining to Lyme disease and the controversy which surrounds it.

Although the Connecticut Medical Examining Board (CMEB) went on to adopt the recommendations of the hearing panel with little change, I remain confident and extremely grateful to my legal defense team, headed by Attorney Pollack, and assisted by his associate Christine Collyer, Lorraine Johnson and others.

They have been engaged in a flurry of critical legal activity since December 18 to prevent the CMEB's determination from becoming final.

For example:

1. With the help of a skilled appellate lawyer from his firm, Attorney Pollack has filed an appeal and an Application to Stay the Connecticut Medical Examining Board's Decision in the Superior Court.

This was successful, because it resulted in a Court decision to stay, or stop, the application of a four part standard for the diagnosis of Lyme disease, pending appeal.

Although the Court did not remove the requirement for a monitor, this means that I cannot be penalized for treating Lyme if:

1) there is low risk of exposure,

2) the symptoms are what some call ``non-specific,''

3) the history is ``non-specific,'' and

4) the Lyme test is negative.

This change resulted from one ground in the appeal, which pertained to the fact that the hearing panel imposed this standard AFTER the trial, so that we had no opportunity to defend against it during the hearing, which most lawyers would consider a breach of due process.

2. Another ground for appeal filed by my attorneys pertained to the inconsistent position taken by the CT DPH Commissioner Galvin.

In a hearing on Lyme disease held in CT in 2004, as well as in other public statements, the Commissioner has stated that there are two standards of care for Lyme disease and that it is too early to ``call the science.''

He then contradicted these statements by bringing action against me predicated on the IDSA standard of care. In so doing, Galvin denied me due process and fair notice.

3. Yet another ground for appeal was based on the question of bias of one of the three panel members, Dr. Senechal.

Following the December 18 hearing, two parents who had not attended previous hearings came forward and expressed horror that Dr. Senechal had expressed extremely biased views regarding physicians who treat Lyme, referring to them as ``quacks.''

Dr. Senechal's remarks, documented in their affidavit, formed the basis for a motion to
reconsider, filed with the CMEB. The CMEB denied this motion, but Dr. Senechal's bias
provided another element which strengthened our appeal.

4. My legal team also was successful in getting the Connecticut Superior Court to stay the reprimand and the two years probation ordered by the CMEB.

Also, the civil penalty, $10,000, was placed in a trust account pending appeal.

It is very important to note that, although the monitoring factor remains in place, the monitor's scope has been limited with regard to the 4 part standard of care (see above) - very good news not only for my practice, but also for that of other physicians who treat Lyme disease comprehensively, and for the patients who seek their care.

5. My attorneys have had to become involved in defending my failure to obtain a monitor by the deadline set by the CMEB, in order to prevent them from holding me in contempt, a finding which, at the worst, could result in an automatic suspension of my CT medical license.

Here are some of the circumstances which led to their involvement in this matter:

The CMEB order stipulates that I must find (and pay for) a board certified pediatrician licensed in Connecticut.

The monitor must be willing to review thirty patients' charts every three months, for a period of two years.

I have had a great deal of difficulty finding a monitor in the allotted time, particularly one who understands how to treat Lyme disease comprehensively.

Some are too busy with their practices to take the time to serve in this capacity.
Many are involved in group practices which often object, because of the time and resources this activity would divert from the collective work of the partners.

Some may not want to take on this role due to the controversial nature of my case.

The CMEB has refrained from providing a monitor; perhaps as a strategy to avoid the accusation that they have installed someone who is hostile.

They have, however, threatened to hold me in contempt, asserting that I have not
exhibited sufficient effort with this matter.

My office continues to aggressively search for a monitor, while my attorneys are dealing with the legal issues involved.

6. As you may have heard, the DPH has brought additional charges against me pertaining to three new cases.

Initially, they intended to introduce these cases into the prior, ongoing hearing, but my attorneys were successful in preventing these cases from being joined with the case already being heard.

New hearings on these three cases will be scheduled in the near future at the
Legislative Office Building in Hartford, CT (watch for future announcements
with more details).

These are expected to be scheduled over a period of at least several months, which my attorneys already have begun to prepare for by
contacting potential experts, compiling legal research and drafting legal pleadings.

Two out of three of these cases, much like the previous case, involve divorced parents engaged in custody and other marital/parental disputes.

One case in particular has ominous implications for the Lyme community, if the DPH charge is allowed to prevail:

I am accused of falsifying an illness in
a child in order to justify his absences from school, essentially colluding with the mother, who has been accused of Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy.

This charge, if upheld, could set a dangerous precedent for the Lyme community, endangering parents and their sick children who are accused of truancy. It must be defeated.

We have some reason to hope, based on the merits of the appeal, that the CMEB and the CT DPH could decide against prosecuting these new charges.

Once again, my legal team has been extremely busy, attending CMEB meetings, drafting
motions, writing memos, conferencing with both the DPH prosecutor and the Assistant Attorney General and more.

I continue to be impressed by their commitment to my case, as well as their sincere concern for what it represents for the children, who are so ill with Lyme disease.

All of this, unfortunately, also has been quite costly, which leads me, with some apology, to the second part of my message to you.

Without the support of the Lyme community, it would not have been possible for me to engage this top-notch legal team and to fight these charges.

I have thought long and hard about the wisdom of continuing this fight, in part because I hesitate to impose any further hardship on so many of you who already have contributed so much, and who are contending with stressed resources.

I have decided, however, that it is essential to continue to oppose the charges brought against me and want to explain why:

1. I am dedicated to the principle of providing appropriate treatment to the
children of Lyme, and to training other physicians to treat pediatric patients through the various preceptor programs currently available.

2. I am gravely concerned that an easy, unchallenged ``defeat'' will send a dangerous message, and that those physicians who depart from the IDSA guidelines in their treatment of Lyme disease will be left more vulnerable.

3. I am strongly opposed to the ominous precedents that will be set if the current charges against me are allowed to prevail.

The two cases that I mentioned above exemplify this danger: namely, the imposition of a restrictive standard of care, as well as the unfounded persecution of families whose children are ill, with accusations of Munchausen's Syndrome by Proxy, malingering and truancy.

4. Because fundraising efforts were suspended over the holidays, when my legal
team was engaged in an intensive flurry of activity, the defense fund is in dire straights: currently, we owe more than $80,000 in legal fees.

All outstanding bills for services rendered must be paid immediately in order for me to retain my legal counsel, and we also must demonstrate that funds will continue to be forthcoming as needed.

With all of this in mind, I must ask you once again to consider making a financial contribution to my legal defense fund, in whatever amount your
circumstances will allow.

If you are able to contribute, I hope you will do so as soon as possible. Instructions for making donations to the legal defense fund are provided at the bottom of this letter.

Additionally, many of you have suggested ideas for fundraising, some of which could draw on resources outside of the Lyme community (e.g., a concert).

I welcome and deeply appreciate this kind of creative effort to raise money for the legal defense fund.

On Friday, March 14, I reached my 79th birthday.

Someone asked me recently if I ever dreamed that I would find myself in this position at this stage of my life.

I replied that, no, I didn't, but if I had the chance to do it over, I would do it all again.

It is largely because of the considerable support and concern that so many of you have conveyed in so many ways that I have been able to maintain my determination to see these charges through to a successful resolution.

Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for your ongoing support.

With very best regards,

Dr. Jones
Charles Ray Jones, M.D.

Please help me understand... What effect has the Connecticutt Attorney General settlement had on this legal action? I just did a new Lyme search on the new search engines "cuil" and found the IDSA website where they claim that they are the obly website with Lyme in the title who are accurate. So these, so called doctors are still actively waging war on Ly,e patients and the doctors who are willing to help us.
I understand supporting and helpng Dr. Jones. But is there nothing we can do to stop the ones attacking our doctors???
I am back in treatment after a serious relapse after "they" closed dowm my doctor temporarily. He too is still battling an attack from a major insurance company. I just don't get why we can't stop the attacks.

My kids are under the care of Dr. Jones. He has physicians from all over the country visit with him for a week ("preceptorship")

We have seen him twice and have been amazed at his knowledge of LD and coinfections and his dedication to sick children.

Perhaps just as amazing is the dedication of the physicians who join him during a week of preceptorship.

These doctors are young, relatively speaking, and are so incredibly knowledgable themselves and dedicated to helping their patients. They look up to Dr. Jones because of his vast knowledge of LD and co-infections and his steadfast resolve to treat his young patients based on his vast clinical expertise rather than an artificial model put forth by a "doctor" in an ivory tower.

If Dr. Jones was prevented from treating sick kids, the ramifications would be devastating, both for the children he treats and for these wonderful like-minded physicians who treat sick kids.

Dr. Jones is incurring legal expenses to the tune of $1500 a day. He is a modest man practicing medicine in a modest office. He works 7 days a week to help sick kids.

If you would like to read more about the character of this man, please read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. In her book there is a section on Dr. Jones and his affiliation with Martin Luther King Jr, with whom he attended school. You will see that Dr. Jones is a man of principle who has lived his life standing up for what he believes in.

There are few, if any, times in life when we are touched by greatness. History will surely look upon Dr. Jones as someone who affected the world simply because he stood up for what he believed in, regardless of what others thought and regardless of the consequences he would face. Throughout his journey, he has helped thousands of children.

I urge every single one of you reading this to please consider making a donation to Dr. Jones' legal fund. No donation is too small.

Your check can be made payable to "Pullman & Comley, Trust Account for Dr. Charles Jones" (please put "gift" in the memo field).

You can mail it to:

Elliott Pollack
c/o Pullman & Comley, LLC
90 State House Square
Hartford, CT 06103-3702

And, in case you're wondering, I have no financial interest in this at all, nor have I been asked to post anything on any website either.

I'm just a mom with sick kids, like so many of you.
