Open-ended question

The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto cites a story about four learning-disabled students who are suing AAMC, the group that administers the Medical College Admissions test (MCAT). They're suing for extra time to take the exam.

Taranto echoes my thought on the Florida ballot initiative: It's in the best interests of trial lawyers to promote bad doctoring.

I'm not jumping to his conclusion that these students will generate malpractice cases. In fact, I hope they succeed in their lawsuit. Maybe later in their careers, they'll sue Medicare, paving the way for doctors to spend more time with patients.
