On Monday, Maullin told the downtown Los Angeles courtroom that she had weaned Smith off powerful anti-anxiety medications when she was pregnant. But that didn't last long, according to Maullin. The doctor told the court that the day Smith left the hospital, defendant Dr. Sandeep Kapoor wrote her new prescriptions for the very medications she had just discontinued.
Maullin also had to face cross-examination Monday. Stern's attorney accused her of weaning Smith off the anti-anxiety medications too quickly. Maullin acknowledged telling Stern that the detox may have been too aggressive and could lead to side effects.
