Well, Rep. Rita Martinson (R-Madison) could possibly enlighten us on that. Her husband, Billy Martinson, sued Dr. Harold Blaylock and the Mississippi Urology Clinic back in 2009 for medical malpractice. The complaint says that Mr. Martinson was infected with E. coli during a prostate biopsy, and that he suffered some pretty awful symptoms as a result of the defendants' failure to properly clean the needle they used. Chockwe Lumumba (constant target of lawyer haters) represented Rep. Martinson's husband in the case.
Wonder how Rep. Martinson would vote on tort reform now?
