Florida Doctor Sets Up Own Publishing Company to Blast Edwards in New Book

Florida Doctor Sets Up Own Publishing Company to Blast Edwards in New Book










(PRWEB) October 23, 2004

During the recent hurricanes, Dr. Knox wrote a book about Senator John Edwards, who made more than million dollars as a medical malpractice plaintiff’s attorney. He set up his own publishing company and distributed more than a thousand copies of his book free to medical and political groups in Northeast Florida. Dr. Knox is hoping to use Senator Edwards as an example “to illustrate why we need Amendment 3.”

Dr. Knox has been actively promoting Florida Amendment 3, which limits the amount trial lawyers can collect in medical liability cases. While researching the various candidates’ political views on tort reform, he was disturbed by information he found out about Vice-Presidential candidate John Edwards. “I couldn’t believe it”, Knox said. “He made about million in a ten year period as a medical malpractice plaintiff’s attorney in North Carolina”. One example is Campbell vs. Pitt County Hospital, where the jury awarded .5 million. Edwards take was more than million. Dr. Knox wanted to get the word out about “the amount trial lawyers collect in these cases”.

Dr. Knox wrote a book about Edwards and set up his own publishing company to distribute more than a thousand copies of his book free to medical and political groups in Northeast Florida. Dr. Knox is hoping to use Senator Edwards as an example “to illustrate why we need to vote YES on Amendment 3. Amendment 3 will let injured patients keep more of an award in a medical liability case, discourage trial lawyers from filing frivolous lawsuits, and encourage quality doctors to keep practicing in Florida.”

The book, entitled “Senator Edwards and the Destruction of American Healthcare” is now available on amazon.com.

If doctor commits malpractice, patient sues, if lawyer commits malpractice, client sues..if a Realtor commits?

Question by Mr. S: If doctor commits malpractice, patient sues, if lawyer commits malpractice, client sues..if a Realtor commits?
malpractice… why not just sue them as well.

See http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20071206/bs_nm/usa_subprime_dc_17

Why is it that the SubPrime Foreclosure mess is being blamed on the economy, not the real culprits those greedy selfish one dimensional “professionals” (realtors).. They really are one dimensional thieves with a sub-standard education (“realty school” is not a substitute, please) and a desire to do nothing more, absolutely nothing more, than improve their image, the bottom line, which is to say money..

They are to blame but no one seems to care.

Comments….
Of course, an assumption can be made that realtors do not collude with the lenders… however that WOULD be only an assumption (which I’ve FACTS which would suggest otherwise).

Best answer:

Answer by Bubba
Actually you can sue them, but getting any monetary ruling is another story.
