Big win in Nevada

Word from Nevada, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal's website, is that the doctor-sponsored Question Three is sailing to enactment by a 60-40 margin, while the lawyer-sponsored counter-initiatives, Questions Four (insurance rates) and Five (sneakily mislabeled a measure against frivolous suits) are going down to defeat, 36-64 and 38-62 respectively. About 270,000 votes have been counted.

Tonight is shaping up as one prolonged migraine for the litigation lobby, isn't it? (At least as regards ballot measures).
