anit-oocA group of the nation’s osteopathic doctors – including IP4PI founder, Craig M Wax, DO, along withAlbert A. Talone, DO, Robert Maurer, DO, Richard Renza, DO, and Roy Stoller, DO – filed suit against the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to recover millions of dollars in annual membership fees that the doctors have been forced to pay for years to the organization.

The physicians—who have filed the suit as a class action—contend that the requirement that they purchase memberships is illegal, has no reasonable connection to the advanced certification and violates the antitrust laws.
