Not clear at all whether there's a trend -- and the legal system is set up to make it extremely hard for doctors to prevail in countersuits -- but the AMA's American Medical News notes that three Ohio doctors have succeeded in getting their legal fees paid by adversaries over the past six months, along with a similar such case in Mississippi. The real pattern to be discerned, if there is one, may be that the Ohio State Medical Association assisted in all three of the wins in its state "through its Frivolous Lawsuit Committee, a program that educates physicians about the practice and helps them defend against it".
