Court Finds in CMMB’s Favor in California Attorney General’s Complaint
On January 7th, 2021, in response to a motion filed on behalf of Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB), a California trial court ruled that the California Attorney General’s (CAG’s) cease & desist order and related fine were unconstitutional.
This follows an earlier ruling whereby a California administrative law judge ruled CMMB abides by and properly values its pharmaceutical donations (gifts-in-kind) in line with all generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), as confirmed and approved by independent auditing firms.
During this long process, CMMB remained confident in our position and decision to rightly protect the reputation of this organization and those who work to bring improved access to healthcare to some of the poorest communities in the world.
For over 100 years, our integrity and reputation have been the primary assets of our organization. We hold our work to the highest standards and are diligent in our transparency and professionalism, adhering to and abiding by acknowledged and accepted industry reporting standards. We invite you to visit our website, www.cmmb.org/financials, where all of our financial statements are posted for review.
Should the CAG’s office decide to appeal these decisions, we remain confident and resolute that the decisions made in CMMB’s favor are proper and will be upheld.
