U-T San Diego Editorials Weigh In Against Proposed Medical Malpractice Ballot Initiative
A U-T San Diego editorial argues that a proposed ballot initiative that would alter state law to increase the limits on medical malpractice compensation to about $1.1 million "should be seen as part of a larger Golden State legal culture in which trial lawyers use lawsuits and the threat of lawsuits for what amounts to legal extortion." Meanwhile, a separate U-T San Diego editorial that the measure is a "disturbing example" of how "special interests still have far too much sway over state government."
