Szaz was found guilty of a number of charges, including incompetence, failure to provide necessary medical treatment, and numerous other charges.

Can you please tell me more about the case in which you say Thomas S. Szasz, M.D. was found guilty? I would like to review the case to which you refer. Can you tell me when and in what state this case was tried? If you cannot cite the case, can you direct me to the source where you found information that suggested Dr. Szasz had been found guilty of "incompetence"?

I suppose if there is much discussion of this, it should be redirected to Pscyhosocial, but I wanted to pose the question here, since your reference to legal action against Szasz is posted here.

It would surprise me if, had there been civil or criminal actions against this prominent and controversial professor, I could find no reference to the case on the Internet.
