Public Citizen issued a letter to the Federal Trade Commission

Public Citizen issued a letter to the Federal Trade Commission Chairman Timothy Muris in response to the large increase in the price of medical malpractice insurance that has angered many physicians. The consumer group's letter was to ask the Commission to immediately launch an investigation in New Jersey especially in light of the New Jersey physicians and medical societies that support taking the law into their own hands. The agreement between New Jersey physicians and medical societies to avoid performing any medical procedures that are not considered emergencies is considered violations of the antitrust laws and section 5 of the Federal Trade Commission Act, 15 U.S.C. 45 according to the consumer group.
