Dallas Dentist Accused of Fraud Seeks Restraining Order Against WFAA


By Merrill Knox Comment

A Dallas dentist who has been accused of billing fraud is seeking a temporary restraining order against Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA and reporter Byron Harris, according to the station (video above).

The dentist, Dr. Richard Malouf, is accused of billing Texas taxpayers for unneeded children’s braces. In July, WFAA reported on the construction of a water park at Malouf’s home. The temporary restraining order alleges that Malouf and his family will suffer “imminent irreparable harm” if the station takes pictures of his backyard, according to WFAA.

A judge is scheduled to hear arguments in this case tomorrow. WFAA has posted the court documents online; read them here.
