Florida Peer Review and the High Price of Immunity

Speaker – Michael J. Bittman and Adrienne E. Marting


This learning session explores peer review litigation, including internal hearings, trial court litigation, and appeals. The contrasting perspectives of hospital and physician counsel on National Practitioner Data Bank reporting and immunity under federal and Florida law will be addressed. Recent state appellate decisions limiting certiorari jurisdiction to review circuit court orders denying hospital dismissal motions on grounds of immunity have resulted in expensive discovery, arguably contrary to the purposes of immunity.
