P.A.P.A. is seeking pharmaceutical support for its Victims Project-a program through which we identify and bring forward patients and physicians who have been harmed by Pennsylvania’s Medical Liability Lawsuit Abuse Crisis. Please tell your Pharma reps that before they can speak to you, they must first call Ken at P.A.P.A. at 215-271-9590.
Also, please ask your assistant to forward P.A.P.A. your reps’ contact information to [email protected].

End of DeWeese Era Could Bring in Tort Reforms

Bill DeWeese is in trouble. Big trouble.
The current Majority Floor Leader and long-time tort reform obstructionist, who conspired with the now- indicted Mike Veon to destroy Pennsylvania’s Fair Share Act, might not survive November’s election.
As P.A.P.A. reported in an earlier issue, House Democratic Whip Mike Veon was arrested in the Bonusgate Scandal prosecuted by Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett. The investigation continues, and the AG’s office has announced more arrests will follow.
Although DeWeese has not been arrested, many are curious as to how the former House Speaker remained clueless to the scandal surrounding him. And many of the curious are voters located in DeWeese’s 50th Legislative District.
Should those voters oust DeWeese this November, the trial bar will lose one of its most powerful advocates.
And Pennsylvania will move miles ahead in achieving the same lawsuit abuse reforms Texas now enjoys.

No other organization has consistently gotten the word out about Pennsylvania’s maternity care crisis as PAPA. We’ve garnered much publicity and have built a strong coalition of physicians and patients who have come forward to share how they have personally been harmed by the crisis.
Would you do your part in helping PAPA continue to identify moms who have been harmed by Pennsylvania’s maternity care crisis by sending a contribution in any amount you are able?
