That's what a Nashville Post story suggests. The lede:
March may come in like a lion and out like a lamb, or vice-versa, but who would have guessed that March 2007 might be the month when the lion would lie down with the lamb?
That's what may be afoot, as a nationally unprecedented concord among medical providers and the legal profession comes together — just maybe — to bring a brand-new model of malpractice litigation reform to Tennessee.
The reforms do not include any caps on damages, instead featuring pre-filing certification, a narrowing of disclosure requirements for past suits against physicians, broader access to physicians by both sides in litigation, locality rule changes, and an extension of a data-gathering process.
