That karma’s a real bitch

A psychiatrist known as a “hired gun” in court cases has been ordered into treatment by medical authorities after being accused of a dubious diagnosis.
Yolande Lucire has been reprimanded by the NSW Medical Board after its professional standards committee disagreed with a diagnosis she made in a medico-legal case and questioned her professionalism.
The eastern suburbs forensic psychiatrist is well-known in legal circles and her testimony in a criminal trial last year sparked a NSW judge to slam doctors for creating a generation of “Ritalin kids”, who were now committing violent crimes.
Dr Lucire said she could not defend herself because of a non-disclosure order, but said the matter “did not relate to patient care”. She can continue to practise.
