Doctor-lawyer wars are reaching a boiling point in Florida

Doctors are suing personal injury attorneys for defamation:

Being labeled a P.I.M.P. for the insurance industry by Palm Beach County trial lawyers didn’t sit well with Dr. Michael Zeide.

Grabbing a weapon from the lawyers’ arsenal, the orthopedic surgeon sued the Palm Beach County Justice Association, accusing the group of trying to ruin his reputation.

Although that lawsuit could have been written off as the action of one angry doctor, another orthopedic surgeon joined the fray last week, filing a lawsuit of his own.
