Special Medical Courts Debate

Nicholas Hengen of Legal Affairs has alerted us to the lively debate occuring at the Legal Affairs website concerning medical malpractice reform.  The debate occurs between Philip K. Howard, Founder and Chair of Common Good and the author of The Death of Common Sense: How Law is Suffocating America and Stephanie Mencimer, a contributing editor of The Washington Monthly who is also writing a book on tort reform.   Philip Howard advocates for "special medical courts" and Stephanie Mencier disagrees and believes that they are a terrible idea.   It is quite a spirited debate that is not only educational (I didn't know the history of special courts) but also quite entertaining.  The debate will continue during this week.  To read the debate thus far, please click here.  [bm]
