Medical malpractice law


Catalano

"The hospital did the right thing. My client felt really good about it."

MBA Treasurer Jeffrey N. Catalano, Washington Post (via Kaiser Health News), January 20

Catalano was quoted in a story about a recently enacted medical malpractice law in Massachusetts, which provides a faster and more open process for injured patients. The MBA worked on the legislation in conjunction with the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys and the Massachusetts Medical Society.

Of note:

  • The lead editorial in Tuesday's Boston Globe advocated for a pay increase for prosecutors and public defenders based on two recent studies conducted by the MBA's Blue Ribbon Commission and the gubernatorial Commission to Study Compensation of Assistant District Attorneys and Staff Attorneys for the Committee for Public Counsel Services (Jan. 20).
