Reform Dead? Alive? Zombie?

Note: Please check the comments for a clarification.

One of the very first posts I did noted how easy it is to get confused in the debate about liability-modifying measures, citing to a Google News screen capture.  Today, in checking the same news search, I noticed these two stories, based on exactly the same interview with the same person:

Reformdead

The first story is here; the second one is here.

(I'm rather enjoying the image of tort reform zombies, incidentally.)

To be fair, the HAI story is quoting Victor Schwartz (and seems to be taken directly from Congress Daily coverage), and the Business Insurance story is quoting Sherman Joyce, though they did speak at the same panel discussion (where I also spoke).

You're right. When I read the articles this morning, I could swear they both referred to interviews with the GC of ATRA. If they ever did, they don't now. My apologies. Still, it is two contradictory perspectives from officers of the same organization.
