MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- After a FOX6 hidden camera investigation Dr. John Lanham, a Milwaukee-area podiatrist, had his license suspended for a year for deceiving clients about insurance coverage and sticking them with outrageous bills.

Now, Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has stepped in and filed a lawsuit against the physician, accusing the man of misleading his patients.

According to an eight-page complaint, when patients asked Lanham if his office accepted their insurance he would say yes even though he wasn't part of any insurance network.

In a letter to the state's Consumer Protection Office last year, Lanham wrote that "My office staff and I do not lie. We also do not volunteer information" -- a statement which the lawsuit calls "deceptive and misleading."

Lanham has repeatedly refused to answer questions from FOX6 Investigators. When it comes to the Attorney General, Lanham will have 20 days to respond to the lawsuit.

If the state has its way, Lanham will be required to pay his patients back, plus up to $200 in fines for every misleading statement made.

A spokesman for the Attorney General says if you were misled by Dr. Lanham, you may still file a complaint by calling Wisconsin Consumer Protection at 800-422-7128.

    There are enough examples of policy change through transparent means. Go back just over a decade and look at how phone companies used an advocacy programme to convince the government to slash import duties on mobile phones. Cheaper handsets brought about a telecom revolution in the country. Electronic procurement by the government is another example where advocacy helped introduce transparency in its purchases of goods.

    The Panna experiment turned out to be a big success. The 576-sq.km reserve, spread over Panna and Chattarpur districts eof Madhya Pradesh, soon became home to a flourishing population of big cats. The reserve, 25 km from Khajuraho, once ravaged by problems, has now 12 tiger cubs, besides the five adults brought in as part of the reintroduction. And that gives Sariska, the leader, a complex, for its three tigresses are yet to give a litter.
