Midwifery Legal Update - Vermont

The Supreme Court of Vermont this week upheld the license revocation of midwife Roberta Devers-Scott.
The state revoked the midwife's license in December 2004 after an 11-month investigation into her conduct during two births in which one baby died and another suffered alleged brain damage.Devers Scott appealed to Washington County District Court and then to the Supreme Court saying an administrative law officer was wrong to conclude that she had violated midwifery and state professional conduct rules.
