Army Surgeon Faces False EO Charges, Bilecki Gives Counseling for Investigation

EO Violation
Tripler Army Medical Center, Hawaii
Army Neurosurgeon – O-4
Findings of no misconduct. No adverse action taken.

In June 2019, a surgeon stationed at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii faced an EO violation allegation after a colleague falsely accused him. The surgeon retained defense attorney Tim Bilecki, who engaged cooperatively with the appointed Investigating Officer (IO) throughout the investigation process. Bilecki prepared the surgeon for a detailed interview conducted at the law firm, which extended over four hours, with a subsequent follow-up interview.

This case was deeply rooted in hospital politics and jealousy, with the surgeon being unjustly scapegoated. However, the competence of the IO shone through as they not only listened attentively to the surgeon’s account but also conducted an exhaustive investigation that corroborated his version of events. The IO’s comprehensive report exonerated the surgeon, implicating no wrongdoing on his part and instead highlighting the ill-intentioned roles of other providers at the hospital.

Following the IO’s investigation, an Equal Opportunity investigation further cleared our client of any misconduct. The FLAG was subsequently lifted, allowing him to return to his professional duties without any adverse actions taken against him. The outcome was a clear vindication, with findings of no misconduct and the surgeon fully exonerated.
