LITTLE ROCK — The U.S. Supreme Court says it won't review the case of an Arkansas doctor sentenced to life in prison for plotting a bombing that nearly killed the chairman of the state's medical board.
The one-sentence denial was filed Wednesday in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Randeep Mann.
Mann was convicted of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and other charges after the February 2009 bombing of Dr. Trent Pierce outside his West Memphis home. Pierce led the medical board when it revoked Mann's license to prescribe narcotics after he allegedly overprescribed pain medications, leading to some patient deaths.
Mann asked the high court in June to consider his case. He has maintained his innocence since his arrest.
