(6/4/2023) -- The American Medical Association has introduced a resolution to adopt a new policy that it is ethical for physicians to refuse to treat plaintiffs' attorneys and their spouses.
According to the AMAâ€™s Web site, the resolution was introduced by Dr. J. Chris Hawk, III, a delegate form South Carolina. It is unclear from the Web site whether the resolution is to be considered at the associationâ€™s upcoming House of Delegates meeting, or if it has any support. The resolution states the doctorsâ€™ efforts at tort reform “have failed at a national level.”
The full text of Resolution 202 can be found on the AMA's Web site.
