The Pennsylvania Chapter of Medical Malpractice “Tort Reform,” State Reserve Funds, and

Yesterday, it was Wisconsin. Today, it’s yet another chapter in the saga of medical malpractice statutes lies in ongoing issues in Pennsylvania. In short, a state fund was created as part of “trot reform.”  However, now the fund is at risk of being used for other purposes, according to a July 5, 2018 post at TortsProf Blog  (and stories linked in it). In brief, the state legislature is trying to “seize” the money and use it for other purposes. Needless to say, the tactic is controversial and litigation is underway, as is described in the article and links within it.
