RACP board director takes college to court

The Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) is facing legal action from one of its own board directors who claims he is being denied access to documents allegedly detailing bullying and potential financial impropriety within the organisation.

Lawyers for the college are expected to front the Supreme Court of Victoria next week in the battle with board director Professor Paul Komesaroff.

Professor Komesaroff, a former chair of the college's ethics committee, says college management has repeatedly denied him access to documents on key issues.
