Louis Santillan Takes The Stand In The People vs. Sim Hoffman, M.D. In Orange County
By Lonce LaMon - September 3, 2015

The same witness, Fernando Rodriguez, the Certified Interpreter who testified on Tuesday, September 1st, in this case of the People vs. Sim Hoffman, M.D. and Thomas Heric, M.D., returned to the stand as court opened yesterday morning in the Westminster Superior Court in Orange County, California. This was the second day of the Preliminary Hearing.  It was Wednesday, September 2nd 2015.
Rodriguez was further questioned by Deputy District Attorney, Shaddi Kamiabipour, and then by Sim Hoffman’s attorney, Bill Fleming.   Shaddi established that Rodriguez had worked as an independent contractor, and had never done a patient translation for Sim Hoffman but had worked for Thomas Heric, most likely on a patient evaluation.
Bill Fleming questioned Rodriguez by making the point that he testified at first he’d worked for Hoffman-Heric for about five years, but then realized later in his testimony it was closer to seven years that he worked for the doctors predominantly training the interpreters and translating the brochures. Fleming reminded the witness that the day prior he testified spending about 5% of his time doing patient translations.   Thus, Fleming asked if it was possible he had dedicated more than 5% of his time doing patient translation.
