The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has fined a New Jersey medical screening company $80,500 for X-raying potential silicosis plaintiffs at motel parking lots without prior written authorization or the presence of a licensed medical practitioner. The fine against Most Health Services, which the company has appealed, stems from allegations raised in silica litigation in Pennsylvania state court that plaintiffs counsel improperly built its silica practice through mass screenings.
