Privacy Lawsuit filed over Tort Reform Infomercial in Georgia

Saw this article today regarding a recent lawsuit filed against a group of doctors, Doctors for Medical Liability Reform, charging them with invasion of privacy and breach of confidentiality.

Doctors for Medical Liability Reform is a coalition of more than 230,000 medical specialists who support federal legislation to reform medical liability laws. Last July the group began an "aggressive, multimillion-dollar" public relations campaign including a 30-minute infomercial that aired on both network and cable television. The infomercial makes the case for medical liability reform through interviews with doctors who have left their practices -- or left Georgia -- and through interviews with the patients they've left behind.
