The lawyer defending nurse Bruce Alan Young against criminal charges begged off the case Wednesday after citing an unusual ethical conflict: A co-worker fears she might be one of the women raped in Citrus Memorial Hospital's recovery room.
In other legal action:
Citrus Memorial moved to dismiss three lawsuits filed by women who say they were sexually assaulted while they were under anesthesia.
In Tallahassee, the state agency that governs nurses issued an emergency order suspending Young's license to practice.
