Oz: CP shouldn't be in court



From the Australian: "Cerebral palsy should be removed as a reason for litigation against obstetricians to ensure the future of maternity services in Australia, a leading expert said today. Alastair MacLennan, a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Adelaide, said each state should pass legislation to ensure medical professionals could not be hit with costly litigation over a condition that was rarely associated with errors during childbirth."
