Going bare

Practicing without professional liability insurance? It isn’t just doctors who do that sometimes; it’s lawyers, too, and many of them don’t take kindly to the notion of disclosing to clients their uninsured status, as a proposal in Georgia would have them do. It tends to throw into an ironic light all those laws — customarily enacted with the vigorous support of organized lawyer groups — which require, e.g., taxi drivers to maintain liability insurance before heading out on the road. (Greg Bluestein, “Lawyers Could Face Disbarment for Failing to Disclose Coverage Status”, Fulton County Daily Report, Nov. 3).
