Great links. Appalled, tho not surprised at the perils of pro bono work today. People are desperate, but how low to go after charitable doctors.
I got called for jury duty once where a creepy guy was suing a doctor for malpractice (very bogus scenario), and the lawyer for the weasel hastily dismissed me as my scepticism over the guy's story showed on my face.
I have lost two internists in a year (who stopped practicin), and my ob-gyn has stopped delivering babies because of the litigiousness of the people in my community. Tho, to be fair, I think the willingness to sue has spread across all income groups. It is perhaps more painful to be sued by someone one has given one's time to, but greedy people exist at all economic levels.

Could waffle on a lot about the Fuller piece but will spare you....:)
