Another setback for testimonial peer review

A Florida appeals court has ruled that the state medical association and three doctors can be sued over efforts to discipline a doctor who had according to his critics given "false testimony and false theories" for "the sole purpose of propagating a frivolous lawsuit for financial gain". Plaintiff's malpractice lawyers applauded the ruling: Robert Boyers of Hannon & Boyers in Miami, for example, suggested that such testimony, no matter how erroneous and damaging, should never carry consequences outside the courtroom (or at least such would be a reasonable reading of his quoted remarks). More here, here, here, here, here, etc.
