LOS ANGELES (AP) - An effort by "Octomom" Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor to reinstate his medical license has been delayed.
Dr. Michael Kamrava's hearing planned for Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court was rescheduled to Dec. 15.
It was Kamrava's fertility treatments that gave Suleman her octuplets and six other children. The Medical Board of California subsequently found the Beverly Hills physician grossly negligent in the care of three patients, including Suleman.
Kamrava is seeking to have the court ask the board to reconsider the revocation of his license. The board, however, remains the ultimate licensing authority.
The octuplets were born on Jan. 26, 2009, and all have survived.
