NewsChannel 11 has learned that a complaint will be filed this week against Lubbock County's soon-to-be medical examiner, Dr. Sridhar Natarajan.

The complaint will come from Austin document specialist David Fisher, who often works for defense attorneys. Fisher will accuse Dr. Natarajan of practicing medicine without a license.

NewsChannel 11 has independently confirmed that, from late March through late July of 2008,  Natarajan allowed his license to go delinquent for non-payment.

Several years ago, the Texas Medical Board went on record quoting state law, that practicing medicine after a 30-day grace period was a violation. However, in a written statement, the medical board now tells NewsChannel 11 that it is not a violation unless it's delinquent by more than a year.

In addition, Dr. Natarajan says that he was not practicing medicine during the time in question. He says he was working as a consultant for Biodynamic Research Corporation in San Antonio.

Dr. Natarajan tells NewsChannel 11 that he was also speaking at conferences for attorneys, which he says does not constitute the practice of medicine. We're also told that Natarajan over-nighted his payment as soon as he noticed that the fees for his license had not been paid.

We expect to hear more details on this complaint later in the week and will keep you updated as further information becomes available.
