Dr. Michael Kamrava, a Beverly Hills fertility expert, is on trial in Los Angeles for allegedly violating the terms of his state Medical Board license by implanting multiple embryos in patients, including "OctoMom" Nadya Sulemn. Today his lawyer said Kamrava "told the octuplets' mother about the dangers of bearing multiple babies," according to an AP report (via Daily News). Kamrava's lawyer cites Suleman's records as evidence of her consultations with the doc; an expert for the Medical Board, however, "says Kamrava's scribbled notes are indecipherable and it's unclear what consultations transpired before Suleman went on to have octuplets in 2009."
