Doctor-Patient Partnership Law Should Remain Intact
Personal injury lawyers in California are pushing a bill (AB 2690) that "would repeal drug companies' basic protection against lawsuits over prescription medicines," John Sullivan, president of the Civil Justice Association of California, writes in an opinion piece. He concludes, "So until your health plan, insurer or your own common sense tells you to see a lawyer instead of a doctor when you're sick, the doctor-patient partnership law should not be repealed."
- "When You Get Sick, Do You Call a Doctor or a Lawyer?" (Sullivan, Capitol Weekly, 5/8).
