KY: Senate Passes Med Mal Review Panel Bill

The Kentucky Senate, on a 23-13 party-line vote, approved a bill requiring med mal complaints to be taken to a panel of experts to determine whether there was a violation of the standard of care prior to being litigated in court.  The panel's finding would be admissible in the trial unless new substantial evidence were discovered after the report.  Previous iterations of this proposal have failed in the Kentucky House.  Many jurisdictions have similar laws.  The Courier-Journal has the details.
