The Nevada Supreme Court has ruled that a racketeering charge against high-profile Las Vegas physician Dipak K. Desai be dismissed, but it permitted prosecution of Desai on other charges involving a hepatitis outbreak at his clinic more than five years ago.

Desai and two employees are accused of reusing syringes and drugs that caused hepatitis C to be transferred to least seven of his patients.
