Case No. 18-0353

Mark B. Irland, M.D.
v.
Iowa Board of Medicine

Mark Irland, M.D., seeks further review of a court of appeals opinion that affirmed the dismissal of his petition for judicial review. The court of appeals found that because nothing the Iowa Board of Medicine “advised” has resulted in Board action, Irland has not been adversely affected by a final agency action. Accordingly, it held the district court did not err in concluding it was without authority to review the Confidential Letter of Warning.
