New Jersey reprimands Cherry Hill psychologist and fines him $500.

On February 14, 2013, the New Jersey Board of Psychological Examiners reprimanded Ronald Gruen, Ed.D., of Cherry Hill, for "making a written submission to a court [which] constituted a violation of confidentiality . . . without the knowledge and consent" of a former patient, identified only by the initials "S.S."

Gruen accepted the reprimand and agreed to pay a $500 civil penalty in lieu of having formal charges filed against him.  The letter from the State and Gruen's statement of acceptance are on-line here.
