A GP who won a legal battle over his elderly patient’s $30 million estate has been found guilty of professional misconduct — but cleared of allegations he breached professional boundaries to secure an inheritance.  

For two years, Dr Peter Alexakis fought the Salvation Army in court over the estate of Raymond McClure, who died of metastatic colorectal cancer in 2017 at the age of 80.
