“Patient Who Commented On Internet Wins In Minnesota Supreme Court Against Doctor Who Sued Him For Defamation”
Maura Larkins, Thank Heaven For Insurance Copmanies
Mr. Laurion wins.
Dr. McKee loses.
The Minnesota Supreme Court agrees with Mr. Laurion that patients have a right to report on the Internet their observations regarding the behavior of doctors. Patients also have the right to report their opinions to medical groups. I don’t know what country Dr. McKee thought he was living in. I believe Dr. McKee proved that he has a bad attitude by hounding Mr. Laurion.
