San Diego Union-Tribune

Tri-City Medical Center directors voted Thursday to consider sanctions against one of their own for alleged embarrassing and unethical behavior at a Carlsbad restaurant, in the latest controversy to hit the North County public hospital district.

Board member George Coulter said that during a dinner meeting May 23, fellow director Kathleen Sterling demanded special treatment in return for her vote on an upcoming issue — an accusation Sterling flatly denied Thursday at a board meeting.
