"Medical Justice" Watch -- Day 1

After looking at the piece in yesterday's WSJ, we've sent an e-mail to the folks at "Medical Justice," asking for a copy of the organization's "patient-physician contract" -- under which patients are asked to agree, as a condition of treatment, that they will rely, in any future malpractice claim, only on experts who "belong to [certain medical societies] and who strictly follow their code of ethics."

No response so far. We'll keep you posted.
