I Always Thought This Was Wierd

Why did earlier med mal studies (including at least one in which Studdert was involved) find such higher rates of frivolous lawsuits than the recent Harvard School of Public Health study? Well, we don’t actually get an answer to that question (I’m sure an excuse is around somewhere) but Specialty Insurance Blog discusses how the study was spinned to look like a victory for the current method of reimbursing people. I always thought the title of that HSPH press release was a little more than just announcing the findings.
