Podcast on med mal in California touches on effects of regulation of attorney's fees on litigation

Go here for a podcast on California's medical malpractice laws featuring Doug Merritt, a lawyer from San Francisco and Jeffrey S. Mitchell, partner with the firm, Bostwick, Peterson & Mitchell LLP. They discuss the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) and California’s current political climate, the defense and plaintiff perspective of medical malpractice cases and how structured settlements have impacted clients.

Of interest to readers of this blog is the fact that the beginning of the discussion touches on the possible effects of the regulation of attorney's fees on access to legal representation and the conduct of lawyers in the process of litigation and negotiation.
