On January 17, 2007, L&G Law Group partner Jenny O. Blake presented a speech on Illinois Tort Reform to a group of American Physicians Assurance Corporation’s sales agents at the Wyndham Hotel in Chicago. The information was so well received that President and CEO R. Kevin Clinton invited her to make the presentation again in Boca Raton, Florida at a meeting of their Board of Directors. This board meeting took place on March 9, 2007, and will be synopsized in a press release entitled Constitutionality of tort reforms not yet tested; stakes are high for Illinois physicians, in the near future.
Ms. Blake clarified the provisions of tort reform for her audiences. She opined as to the likelihood of its being upheld as well as to the short and long-term implications of its potential success or failure.
