Justices Question Florida’s Medical Malpractice Law

ORLANDO BUSINESS JOURNAL — The Florida Supreme Court last week appeared to signal questions about the constitutionality of a 2011 law that placed new requirements on out-of-state expert witnesses in medical-malpractice cases.

The law was heavily backed by the Florida Medical Association, which has long argued for more restrictions on experts who testify against doctors. But plaintiffs’ attorneys contended the law, which created a new certification process for out-of-state experts, was unconstitutional.
