Los Angeles (AP) - A California judge says Octomom Nadya Suleman's fertility doctor should be allowed to keep practicing medicine and that the state's move to revoke his license is too severe.

In a proposed decision made public Monday, Judge Daniel Juarez says Dr. Michael Kamrava should be placed on probation for five years for his substandard treatment of Suleman and two other patients.

The Beverly Hills fertility doctor still faces a final decision from the Medical Board of California, which is scheduled to meet this week to discuss his case and other business.

During a hearing late last year, Kamrava testified that he implanted Suleman with 12 embryos - six times the norm for a woman her age - in the pregnancy that resulted in her octuplets. They were born in January 2009.
