I also know that if all those who want to restrict the legal rights of ordinary citizens have their way, I wouldn't have waited seven months for an apology from the doctors, which I got only after my story became public. I would have waited forever.
I had a thought, in the category of what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. If victims of negligence should be limited in their legal rights, why shouldn't doctors guilty of negligence be limited in their legal rights? I suspect doctors, or any other tortfeasors, would object mightily to such a limitation, which is why plaintiffs object just as vociferously.
