AMA to look to change bankruptcy law
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Jan. 5, 2004
The American Medical Association will propose changes to bankruptcy laws that are consistent with medical liability reform, including further strengthening of bankruptcy laws by protecting an individual's personal assets from being used to pay excessive liability awards and establishing a minimum homestead exemption. A report on the progress is expected at the next Annual Meeting in June.
