Per the New York Sun, whose coverage of these matters runs rings around some of its larger competition, trial-lawyer-allied groups are trying pre-emptively to head off medical no-fault proposals that had been under serious consideration by the administration of departed Gov. Spitzer. No indication just yet of the view Gov. Paterson will take. Bonus extra moment of pawky humor: the Center for Justice and Democracy, a group that would ardently defend any and every $30 million infant-injury award the NYC hospital system might be ordered to pay, repositions itself as being oh, so concerned about the danger of, you guessed it, government budget deficits.
Medical no-fault for New York?
