TRENTON - Steven Brigham, whose questionable practice of beginning late term abortions in New Jersey and finishing them in Maryland led to the revocation of his medical license last fall, is pursuing an appeal, according to his lawyer and court records.

The state Board of Medical Examiners took away Brigham's license in October, and in November ordered him to pay $560,000 in court fees and fines. Without his license, Brigham was required by state law to divest himself from the American Women's Services clinics he owned in Elizabeth, Mount Laurel, Paramus, Phillipsburg, Toms River, Woodbridge and Voorhees.

Brigham's attorney Joseph Gorrell of Roseland said his client late last year submitted a letter on Brigham's behalf confirming he had sold his interest in the clinics. Vikram H. Kaji, an obstetrician and gynecologist and the medical director for American Women's Services has assumed ownership, according to the state Health Department.
