PA: More Med Mal Declines

There is new med mal data from my home state of Pennsylvania.  Since the base years of 2000-2002, med mal cases in PA have declined 43%, with the biggest drop occuring in Philly (68%).  In 2003, a certificate of merit requirement and venue restrictions went into effect.  In 2013, 77% of jury verdicts were for the defense; 2 of 5 non-jury verdicts were for the defense.
