Defensive medicine works. A recent study shows that obstetricians who have higher C-section rates are far less likely to be sued than those who have low C-section rates. Why? There are two possible reasons: obstetricians who have higher C-section rates may have better outcomes and obstetricians who aggressively try to prevent bad outcomes are less […]
What is ImprovingBirth.org trying to accomplish by encouraging the woman in the forced episiotomy video to file a lawsuit she can’t win?
I don’t get it. And, of course, the folks at ImprovingBirth.org won’t explain it or even respond to my tweets. I’ve written before about the shameless way that both ImprovingBirth.org and Human Rights in Childbirth have relentlessly exploited “Kelly” (her real name appears to be posted with the YouTube video, but IB and HRiC have […]
We’ve settled the lawsuit: The parties have entered into a settlement agreement which has resolved all claims and controversies to their mutual satisfaction.
I’ve been somewhat remiss in posting updates, but I’ve had good excuses. Last week I was in Maui, speaking at the ACOG district conference.

For someone who is claiming that her case should be dismissed because of the hardship of litigating in Massachusetts, Gina is doing a lot of litigating in Massachusetts.

The judge has granted us a hearing on the Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction and the substantive issue of the DMCA take-down notices! It’s due to take place in late June.
On Monday Techdirt published yet another piece on my lawsuit against Gina, MPAA Freaks Out: Insists That Having To Consider Fair Use Before Filing A DMCA Takedown Would Be Crazy: Is it really any surprise that the MPAA suddenly took notice of the case after the EFF filed an amicus brief? The MPAA had to […]
Techdirt’s article on my lawsuit mentions a key issue: ….
