(Las Vegas, NV) – The doctor at the center of the Las Vegas hepatitis-C outbreak 5 years ago is accused of faking memory loss in his bankruptcy case. The Bankruptcy trustee, William Leonard, says Dipak Desai is “hiding behind a false shield of asserted incompetency” to avoid answering questions about his finances.  The 62-year-old Desai has been found competent to stand trial on criminal charges stemming from the hepatitis C outbreak at his now-closed clinics.  The “faking” issue will go before the bankruptcy judge May 15th.
