Board upholds part of ruling against former child psychologist

The state's board of psychological examiners upheld a judge's ruling against a former child psychologist who was the subject of a News 12 New Jersey

NEWARK - The state's board of psychological examiners upheld a judge's ruling against a former child psychologist who was the subject of a News 12 New Jersey investigation. But the board did not rule on Marsha Kleinman's request for a lighter punishment that would allow her to continue to practice psychology.

Kleinman was a subject of a News 12 New Jersey investigation five years ago. She's accused of implanting false memories of sexual abuse in patients whose parents were involved in child custody disputes.

In July, an administrative law judge ruled Kleinman committed repeated acts of misconduct and should forfeit her license. Kleinman appealed to the board, which has the final authority. However, after nearly 11 hours of testimony, the board adjourned without making a decision on the penalty Kleinman should get. They'll meet again next month.
