Almost two weeks ago, I reported that a Kentucky judge held unconstitutional the state's 2017 law requiring med mal cases to be reviewed by a panel of doctors prior to proceeding to trial. On Friday, the Kentucky Court of Appeals issued a stay of the order. The 89 current cases will proceed and prospective cases will have to proceed through the panel process. The stay is in effect until further notice. The Northern Kentucky Tribune has details.
