There is a statute of limitations on medical malpractice though. Usually 16 months to 5 years. So there is no way it would hold up in court anyways.

Still loving this thread. Bottom line is that legal or not, it isnt right. Plenty of things are legal, and plenty are illegal, doesnt make them right.
