A Las Vegas lawyer who pleaded guilty to obstruction earlier this year concerning an alleged medical malpractice case kickbacks scheme has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada Supreme Court.
Further attorney discipline proceedings will determine an appropriate sanction for Noel Gage, 72, who had been accused of participating in an alleged scheme in which physicians paid kickbacks to plaintiff's lawyers to avoid payouts in medical malpractice cases, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
