When physicians betray our trust: Regents OK $8.5 million for 2 patients suing over financial conflicts at UCLA

Of course, the doctor and the university have stated (through press releases) that they did absolutely nothing wrong. They are paying the $8.5 million simply because of their generous impulses. Medtronic also made a payment under conditions that require that no information be release (because they want to protect patient privacy? give me a break).

This sort of flagrant wrongdoing and blatantly false denial of wrongdoing undermines one’s confidence in our formerly trusted institutions. And it is also infuriating that the university and the doctor think that the public is so easily fooled. $8.5 million for nothing? Not likely.

Here’s the story. Judge for yourself whether the university and the doctor are simply lying.
