Legal Defense Fund

FSOMA Legal Defense Fund

The Legal Defense Fund was created by the FSOMA Board to help cover legal expenses for issues which threaten the practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. It is used to pay for legal consultations and to begin the funding of litigation if the profession needs to go to court to defend itself from outside attack. 

The most recent use of this fund was to bring a lawsuit against the Board of Physical Therapy.  FSOMA won a lawsuit in 2019 where the judge agreed that dry needling is acupuncture and that the Board of PT did not have the authority to make a rule allowing PTs to practice dry needling..
