Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2007
Public Interest Watch (PIW) (www.publicinterestwatch.org)has just called itÃ‚Ã‚Â’s attention to a video which it believes is seemingly contradictory to testimony in sworn depositions presented in pending West Virginia medical malpractice lawsuits (Putnam Circuit Court, West Virginia). The video can be viewed at: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Ai8T8mhCGuA
The link was published August 1 in the West Virginia Record (www.wvrecord.com). According to the article, Dr. John King was suspended in May 2003 by Putnam General.
Ã‚Ã‚Â“A look at the video could lead one to believe itÃ‚Ã‚Â’s the personal injury lawyers who need credentialing,Ã‚Ã‚Â” said Steve Cohen, executive director of West Virginia Citizens against Lawsuit Abuse (WV CALA), a grassroots legal watchdog group. Ã‚Ã‚Â“Lawsuit mills like what it appears we may have here are a major reason this state has a reputation as a Ã‚Ã‚Â‘judicial hellhole.Ã‚Ã‚Â’Ã‚Ã‚Â”
