    State officials have reached a consent agreement in a complaint filed against a doctor who performed abortions at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington.

    The complaint filed in May said Dr. Timothy Liveright represented a "clear and immediate danger to the public."

    It accused him of engaging in multiple acts of incompetence and negligence in performing abortions on five patients in February and March of this year.

    A hearing on the complaint was scheduled for Friday but was canceled after Liveright signed a consent agreement drafted by the attorney general's office.

    Officials refused to disclose details until the agreement is accepted by the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline at its January meeting.

    Liveright was reprimanded by Planned Parenthood last year for unprofessional conduct and has already surrendered his license.
