Trouble in paradise...

Even Hawaii can't escape the issue of malpractice lawsuits and rising malpractice insurance rates:

"Maui doctors warn that some specialists could quit practicing in Hawaii if the state fails to act on the increasing threat of high-cost claims in lawsuits against physicians.
The physicians are appealing to the state Senate Health Committee, which will meet today on a bill that would place a cap on damages awarded in medical malpractice lawsuits. The meeting on Senate Bill 757 is scheduled for 2:45 p.m. at the State Capitol. The committee deferred action on the bill Friday. "
