As a local medical society, the CMA did not take a position on state-wide elections such as the race for Ohio Supreme Court Judge. But, the Ohio State Medical Association did and for younger doctors the OSMA's endorsed candidates might not make sense or matter to them, while older doctors have a completely different perspective.

Take a look at this interesting article from Malcolm Porter to get a brief background on the issue of medical liability insurance, Ohio’s tort reform law, and how that applies to the Ohio State Supreme Court race.
