AMA adopts principles for health courts

> The [American Medical Association (AMA) today adopted new principles for health courts][1], special medical courts composed of judges trained in medical standards that could render more accurate decisions on whether or not medical malpractice has actually occurred.
This is probably a very good thing for doctors and a bad thing for lawyers. Personally, in a medical malpractice action, a _”jury of my peers”_ is a group of 12 surgeons, not a group of [12 licensed California drivers][2].
