An Impossible Victory: Kaul v Christie
The Audio Book
"An Impossible Victory" is a story about one man's relentless pursuit to expose corruption within American state medical boards, the New Jersey state courts and government. It follows the journey of physician Richard Arjun Kaul, MD, as he fights his way back from professional annihilation. "An Impossible Victory" is a David v. Goliath tale, in which Richard, a surgeon by training, achieved unprecedented legal milestones, despite his lack of legal training. It is the story of a man who overcame adversity in childhood and entered, at the age of eighteen, one of the world's top medical schools. A poor Indian immigrant raised in Britain in the 1970s, who fought racism. A man who was orphaned by the age of sixteen, and who, in 1999, challenged the British Government in a landmark legal case, in which the British Government concluded that American medical training was inferior to British training. The challenge caused a retaliatory prosecution by the Crown Prosecution Service, a criminal case tried at the Old Bailey, that could have resulted in Richard spending life in jail. He walked out of the court a free man and in September 2001 he returned to the United States, having previously left in 1995. In 2003, an American judge rendered a scathing opinion of the entire British case.
In 2005, Richard invented and performed the first outpatient percutaneous spinal fusion, a procedure that revolutionized the field of minimally invasive spine surgery and garnered him international attention. It was however, from this pinnacle of success, that his career and life were attacked in 2012 by jealous physicians. But by 2016, he had arisen from the ashes of his life, but in the world of law; a Phoenix-like rise that destroyed the political career of the then New Jersey Governor, Christopher J. Christie. "An Impossible Victory" is a story that weaves together the worlds of medicine, business, law and politics at the highest levels. It is a story of resilience, of one man's search for justice against seemingly insurmountable odds, and a story that the defendants attempted to bury, by forcing the world’s largest audio book platform, AMAZON-ACX, to suppress the publication of the audio book. It was eventually published by Find-Away Voices on Scribd.
