North Carolina Medical Board won’t publish all malpractice settlements

Raleigh News & Observer, July 18, 2008

The North Carolina Medical Board has decided to publish medical malpractice payouts doctors have made, but the information will not be as comprehensive as initially planned. Answering concerns from doctors, medical malpractice insurers, and defense lawyers, the Board voted to make public only settlements of more than $25,000. The board also decided that rather than immediately post settlements that spanned the previous seven years, the start date of the malpractice profiles will be October 2007, when the legislature made the rule effective.
