The potential of judicial impartiality was raised by Wyatt B. Durette Jr., who is representing Dr. Michelle Martel in a suit against Dr. Don Shuwarger, Dr. Regina E. Auth, George W. Dawson, president of Centra Health, and Centra Health.

The suit was brought by Martel and her now-closed practice, Women for Women, of which she's now sole owner and stockholder.Women for Women was founded in 1995.Martel had professional relationships with those named in the suit.Martel, a specialist in obstetrics and gynecology and high-risk pregnancy, is a former partner with Auth in Women for Women.
Martel and Auth have been in court over issues in that partnership.
In this suit, in her demurrer, Auth has a number of counterclaims against Martel.
Martel, who first worked for Centra Health in 1994, at one time also oversaw the regional perinatal high-risk clinic for Centra Health, and is a former chairwoman of the Ob-gyn department at Virginia Baptist Hospital.The suit details some of the events which began in 1999 when her son died of cancer and she also became ill from a tick bite.During the next several years, what had been a thriving medical practice began to decline and at one point in 2002 she lost her privileges at Centra Health.Martel alleges a conspiracy and vendetta were involved.The suit says it continued until after her practice closed and even as she sought employment through a specialized agency that places doctors.The defendants deny those allegations.Among the awards Martel asks for are $10 million in damages each from Shuwarger, Dawson and Centra for conspiracy "to eliminate Dr. Martel as a competitor and to destroy Women for Women."
