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.

Why does John Edwards get a “career ender” for doing what Bill Clinton has done, hundreds of times?

Question by slappyjk: Why does John Edwards get a “career ender” for doing what Bill Clinton has done, hundreds of times?
It sure is hard to figure out liberals ethics and morals. For the past 30 years, Bill Clinton has dozens and dozens of affairs, trysts, gropes, sexual harrassments, quickies, Bill Clinton should be a honorary NBA player.

So, John Edwards, cheats with one woman (that we know of), lies about the affair, lies about the baby from the girlfriend and his career is over, even liberals who support Clinton’s cheating, are condemning Edwards.

Lets go through the checklist of liberal’s thinking-
1) Edwards is a horrific scum sucking trial lawyer, gets rich by exploiting deaths and accidents to collect 40% of the jury and settlement jackpots- BUT that’s not a bad thing to liberals, they love ambulance chasing trial lawyers.

2) adultery- Jessie Jackson, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy, and John Edwards are all adulterers, who are all shameless in their selfishness, BUT, liberals love adulterers, most of their leaders are cheaters. So, that’s not it.

3) Was it lying? All of the heroes of democrats are all liars, none of them have a moral bone, in their body. Was Edwards lying worse than Teddy’s when he didn’t remember leaving the scene of a fatal accident to sober up and hope no one knew he was involved?

4) Was it the “my wife is dying card” that Edwards played, to garner sympathy and votes? That one doesn’t make sense, it was Elizabeth’s idea to play the “I have cancer” card, Elizabeth was the architect of most every political move, John Edwards made; Elizabeth was an attorney, powerful, mean-spirited and tough as nails, she is not the innocent wife who got sick and passed away; read the book by Andrew Young, who describes the real Elizabeth Edwards who wanted to be first lady, so bad, she would ruin anyone who stood in the way. Not saying John is any prince but Elizabeth was truly wicked and mean.

So, why is it John Edwards is ruined for doing what Bill Clinton has done hundreds and hundred of times over this (phony) 30 year marriage with sHrillery?

wdx2bb- are you kidding me, you should get educated about the Clintons, read some books, Bill Clintons has had hundreds of women over the past 30 years. If Bill had just twenty per year, that would be 600 over 30 years. Again, read some books about the Clintons if you dare to know the truth.

Q&A: Why hasn’t John Edwards been more succssful in politics? ?


by Ed Yourdon

Question by slappyjk: Why hasn’t John Edwards been more succssful in politics? ?
As we know, liberals love a smooth talking liar (Obama, Clinton) and John Edwards is very smooth. The liberal media dumped sHrillery for “The Messiah” , no doubt because her people skills fall just short of Papa Stalin. Liberals love a good liar but not John Edwards.

HHHhhhmmmmmmm……

Is it because he is a southerner with a Carolina accent? New York and Boston liberals look down on southerners, is that it?

Is it because Edwards was a shameless personal injury lawyer, taking 40% contingency fees, exploiting horrific tragedies and frivolous law suits? No, I recall Michael Moore’s “Sicko” completely gave personal injury lawyers a pass…. hhhmmm… evey health care worker and firm have to buy expensive malpractice insurance and force patients to take needless procedures and operations, in fear of the predator trial lawyer. Of course all these expenses are dumped onto the consumer and Michael Moore totally missed that in his documentary.

The “my wife is dying card” was as believable as the Clinton’s romantic New Years Eve photo-op but Edwards was already wounded by then.

Is it because Edwards has no bandwagon like Gore’s environmental con?

Why has John Edwards not reached the upper tier of the democratic party?

Is John Edwards ever going to be the democratic party candidate for President?

Would it help if he had an affair with Caroline Kennedy?

Would you like a synopsis of John Edwards’ most famous case as a trial lawyer?


by Lubbock Democrats

Question by hellafunguy35: Would you like a synopsis of John Edwards’ most famous case as a trial lawyer?
Most people on here are clearly the types who deride Edwards simply for being an “ambulance chasing trial lawyer” but of course that’s because they’re simply parroting back the drivel they’ve been spoonfed all their lives. Here’s a summary of Edwards’ most famous case:

John prosecuted a claim on behalf of a 3 yo girl whose intestines were literally sucked out of her body when she sat down over a powerful suction pump in a kiddie pool which was inadequately covered by a flimsy plastic piece, leaving her dependent on medical assistance which would cost her and her family millions of dollars during her lifetime.

Testimony from pool design expert witnesses showed that a sturdy suction cover could have been provided at a cost of only an additional 25 CENTS, yet the defendants chose to utilize the flimsy plastic piece TO SAVE A MEASLY 25 CENTS PER PUMP.

That’s how much businesses care about you. Your safety wouldn’t be worth 25 CENTS to them if it weren’t for people like Edwards.
Oh yeah right Sherilynne, you don’t agree with my viewpoint so I must be lying. How typical. Well here’s a link for you:

http://www.monkeytime.org/lakey.html

And oops, I did get one of the facts wrong. The girl was 5 yo, not 3.
That prior comment was meant for lobo, but this is for you Sherilynne.

I don’t know how much Edwards got for his fee, but it was probably 40% of the recovery plus his expenses.

Edwards ended up recovering about $ 31 million for the girl, so his fee would have been about $ 13 million. Given that the company only offered $ 100k to settle before trial and the girl probably would have gotten nothing at all without Edwards’ help, it would seem that the girl got about $ 15 million more than she would have if she hadn’t agreed to pay John his fee.

You wanna take a guess if the girl’s family is happy they paid John his fee to help them?
