NCLEJ Urges U.S. Supreme Court to Protect the Ability of Low-Income Patients to Pursue Medical Malpractice Claims

On November 11, NCLEJ filed an amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to protect the ability of low-income patients of federally-funded health centers to pursue medical malpractice claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act by continuing the longstanding rule allowing exceptions to time limits for bringing claims. The amicus was filed in U.S. v. June and NCLEJ was joined by the Sargent Shriver National Center for Poverty Law. NCLEJ Board member Edward Krugman and his colleagues at Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP represented NCLEJ and the Shriver Center.
