Publicizing Plaintiffs

An interesting FindLaw piece by Julie Hilden on LitPages and the like -- sites that provide lists of medical malpractice plaintiffs (excepting those who won jury verdicts).

In the end, the precept that "more information is better" is nowhere more true than on the Internet. Calls to ban sites like LitiPages ought to be replaced by calls to reform them, or to convince them to include a right-of-reply - or calls to let them be free, and trust that other sites will arise to correct any misinterpretations they may foster.
