Victory for Medical Malpractice Victims in Virginia

Last month, I wrote about the Virginia Supreme Court’s expected ruling regarding whether tax-exempt physician foundations should have immunity from medical malpractice liability. The TortsProf Blog reports today that the Virginia Supreme Court did the right thing (my words, not theirs) and found that tax-exempt doctor foundations are not immune from medical malpractice liability.

This is an important victory for medical malpractice victims in Virginia who would have been left without a remedy and in the majority of Virginia medical malpractice cases had the Virginia Supreme Court found that these doctor foundations were immune from medical malpractice lawsuits.
