|Sim Hoffman, M.D. And Thomas Heric, M.D. Finally Plead Not-Guilty In Orange County Superior Court After Demurrer Denied|
By Lonce LaMon - November 18, 2014
Sim Hoffman, M.D. and Thomas Heric, M.D. were finally arraigned in Orange County Superior Court on Friday, November 7th 2014 and appeared again in court for pre-trial proceedings on November 14th 2014. They both pled not-guilty; they denied all the allegations and the enhancements.
The not-guilty pleas happened after Hoffman’s demurrer was denied. A demurrer is a pleading which essentially accepts all or most of the facts, but argues the law—arguing generally that there is no legal basis for the lawsuit. But clearly the judge saw some legal justification for the lawsuit, as the lengthy demurrer was not sustained.
A preliminary hearing has now been set for Friday, March 6th 2015 in Department C-57.
It was a long morning for workers’ compensation insurance fraud in Orange County on November 7th. Deputy District Attorney Shaddi Kamiabipour was the prosecutor for two other cases in court rooms C-30 and C-45. Those were the cases of Aspen Medical Resources and Landmark Medical Management, respectively.
It was anticipated that the hearing for Hoffman and Heric would take place at 8:30 am on November 7th, however, Heric waited on the bench just outside the court room in his black vest with a white long sleeved shirt for nearly two hours, while Hoffman stood up for much of that time in his red tie wearing a dark grey suit.
