Employees of attorney general's office and comp commission to make presentations to Court of Appeals meeting

The Richmond paper reports here that the members of the Virginia Court of Appeals will hear presentations from officials from the Office of the Attorney General and the Virginia Workers Compensation Commission on the topic of "the state's troubled birth-injury program" at their annual retreat.

The article quotes a lawyer who bucks head with the AG's office in these neurological birth-related injury cases as saying that she is "flabbergasted" and this news "raises more questions than answers in my mind." The article goes on to say, however, that "in almost every case reaching the appeals court, the infant has prevailed." Maybe the judges will tell the presenters to straighten up their acts.
