FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 25, 2007

The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the chiropractic license of James R. Mc Canse, D.C. The MDCH Bureau of Health Professions orders a summary suspension when it believes that the public's health, safety, and welfare warrant emergency action.

Mc Canse's license was suspended based on an investigation that was initiated by the United States Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Mc Canse was charged with four felony counts of Child Sexually Abusive Material – Possession, in the 4th Judicial District Court, Cass County, Michigan. The criminal matter is currently pending.

On April 16, 2007, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Mc Canse's chiropractic license. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of McCanse's license.
