Given the standard medication of a Statin drug for heart aliments the drug should be met with a lawsuit considering the damages to life for memory loss to side effects.

Given the knowledge of the importance of cholesterol in the body a restriction of false information by the cholesterol scare from the cardiologist should be issued

So who is going to make judgement on frivolous lawsuits. ALEC members? Republican Rectal lickers or medical professionals with history of crimes and atrocities in medical procedures for profit.

No need for a "certificate of merit" for pharmaceutical mind drugs prescribed. The drugs have universal history of health damage and loss of mental stability. Same as with the Statin drugs. How about the damages to the new born with Reglan. Lots of other toxic drugs.

I say double the fine after the automatic 1 million and then flog the unconcerned doctor or pharmaceutical CEO or medical product mfg and shove the legislation for frivolous or marginal lawsuits involving medical malpractice up the nostril of the politician
