Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

March 17, 2014 - The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) has immediately suspended the license to practice as a pharmacist of James D. Orr, R.Ph., of Caledonia based on his conviction in the United States District Court, Western District of Michigan, Southern Division. 

On November 14, 2013, Orr was convicted of Causing Drugs Held for Sale to be Misbranded After Shipment in Interstate Commerce, a felony.  Orr was ordered to pay an assessment of $100.00, and a fine of $30,000.00.

On March 6, 2014, LARA issued an order summarily suspending Orr’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a felony, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for a maximum term of two years, or a controlled substance-related conviction.
