The AMCNO Medical Legal Liaison Committee provides updates, information and references to assist members dealing with medical/legal issues in their practice.

Amicus Briefs

The AMCNO regularly participates as an amicus party in selected state court cases, at times at the request of the request of an interested party or through the review of the AMCNO Medical Legal Liaison Committee.

The AMCNO Board of Directors has determined that the AMCNO should consider filing an amicus brief if a case were going to impact the current tort reform law in Ohio and the case involves the care of a physician, preferably from the Northern Ohio community. The AMCNO will also consider filing a brief in the case of a health care related issue that could impact the health of patients in our state or the community.
