Texas Nurse On Trial After Reporting Doctor

February 8, 2010 A nurse in Texas is standing trial for reporting a doctor she thought was practicing bad medicine. Prosecutors have charged 52-year-old Anne Mitchell with making inflammatory statements about a doctor at a rural hospital in Kermit, Texas. She faces up to 10 years in prison. Mitchell says she was just trying to protect her patients. Kevin Sack of The New York Times says much of the case stems from local politics.
