In hts bill Dr. Leach accuses Dr.
Giles of making the following re
marks during the National Medical

August: "Dr. West told me that

Heard By Board Members
These remarks, according to Dr.
Leach, were made in a school
building io New York City on Aug.
13, 1939. and in the presence of the
following members of the Executive

In the second count Dr. Leach ac
cuses Dr. Giles of publishing a
false report. This rufort, accord
ing to the bill of complaint, was
written Aug 15 in the same school
building In New York City after a
"conference held by defendant and
Dr. West, of Chicago."
In addition to making the same
allegations alleged to have been
made by Dr. Giles in the presence
of the Executive Board two days
before, the report also said: "That
wr have as our president a man in
Flint, Michigan who was guilty of
that crime for which he should
have been expelled from organised
medicine and we. National Medical
association, made him president,
but that we are not alone in our
dereliction, because twenty white
members of the American Medical
association had reprimanded these
men for iheir action.*
Dr. Leach charges that because
of these slanderous remarks and
the defamatory report, he has ’ suf
fered a lo*s of practice In his pro
fession and has lost the confidence,
respect and esteem. In particular
among those of the National Med
