By "integral" the court doesn't mean a necessary component of, they mean of or pretaining to. The mistake he made was an odd one, but it was still of or pretaining to his professional practice.

Read the majority Supreme Court decision here:

It boils down to the insurance company's refusal to provide a defense immediately and to determine if the doctor had coverage later. This is a great decision for anybody who buys insurance and expects that company to follow the terms of the policy language!

Fine. Give him the money. then disbar him for abusing a patient under anesthesia.

Oy. Insurance shouldn't cover this. Insurance isn't meant to cover intentional acts of malfeasance. The fact that he did this on purpose means that he should have no coverage. It's not malpractice, since it's not an error or due to medical ignorance, and it's not general liability since again, he intentionally did it. Since intentional acts are specifically and explicitly excluded, the insurance company shouldn't have been obligated to defend him.

I agree with fnarf. Why isn't this guy in jail?

Yet another thing to add to the list of reasons why I avoid anesthesia at all costs. Give me a good old fashioned nerve block any old day.

You take the tusks out, your ankles are by degrees safer in the local thicket.

What is with dentists going koo-koo bananas on anesthetised patients? I think that spending so much time alone with non-responsive, vulnerable people fucks them up the same way going straight from elementary school to high school to university to teaching elementary or high school fucks up a lot of teachers.
