Plaintiffs’ Bill S.B. 93 Was Ill-Conceived

Senate Bill 93 would have allowed accident victims insured by Medi-Cal (and their lawyers) to recover higher settlements and judgments.  But the rhetoric of both sides fails to explain why the resulting medical damages would have been fair — or too high, depending on one’s point of view.  Although the governor vetoed the bill (again), the issue will not go away.  To understand how the plaintiffs’ bar is trying to change bedrock principles of tort law, read my recent legal commentary in the San Francisco Daily Journal.
