Taking a Bite out of the Great Medical Malpractice Hoax

Laura MacCleery, Director of Public Citizen's Congress Watch division, debated Jim Copland of the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research on WNYC's "The Brian Lehrer Show."

The segment gets heated as they debate New York State's 14% increase in malpractice insurance and the civil justice system in preserving victim's rights.
