More on medical-malpractice insurance



Robert Hunter gives an "I'm rubber and you're glue" response that ignores the vast majority of the criticisms Martin Grace and I made, and falsely claims we had no data in our report. Martin and I will decide over the weekend whether it merits a longer response than that.

Unfortunately for Hunter, this comes in the same week that HCLA catches Hunter admitting that tort reform lowers insurance rates and that a new Daniel P. Kessler study finds that "increases in tort awards, settlement payments, and defense costs explain why premiums have risen" and that the evidence Hunter adduces in claiming an "insurance cycle" is solely responsible for premium increases is "inconclusive."
