The AIDS Healthcare Foundation is being sued by Nevada’s Chief Medical Officer for the offense of offering HIV testing in a mobile lab.

Dr. Tracey Green, the state’s chief medical officer, says the foundation is illegally “operating a medical laboratory in the state of Nevada without a license or registration.” Green is represented in Clark County Court by Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

State officials received complaints on May 1 that the foundation was using a mobile rapid-testing vehicle to provide HIV testing on the premises of at least two popular Las Vegas gay bars without having required state licenses…

Green and Masto say that officials with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation claim they do not need state-issued licenses to perform the HIV testing and will not stop the mobile rapid testing…

The AIDS Healthcare Foundation, based in Los Angeles, provides HIV testing, prevention and healthcare services. Michael Weinstein established the foundation in 1987, and it now has offices in Florida, Texas, Georgia, Ohio, California and Washington, D.C.

    But I thought you didn’t need a license for anything in Nevada.
