RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The federal Justice Department is seeking an injunction to stop a retired Rapid City dentist from selling low-level laser devices for home medical use.

Robert Lytle says the government doesn’t have the right to stop anyone from choosing to use his laser devices.

A Monday hearing is scheduled in U.S. District Court on the Justice Department complaint. The 80-year-old Lytle is representing himself and his businesses, which he says are private-member associations that don’t do business with the public.

The court complaint alleges Lytle’s devices are advertised to treat several diseases and disorders for which they’re not federally approved. Lytle disputes that, and says he hasn’t had a written complaint in 17 years.
