Opponents of medical malpractice initiative hold money advantage
Los Angeles Times

Opponents of a ballot measure that would raise the limit on certain medical malpractice damages have far outpaced the initiative’s supporters in fundraising and spending, according to campaign finance reports filed Monday night.

The “no” campaign on Proposition 46 brought in $20.6 million between July 1 and Sept. 30 of this year, mostly from doctors and insurance companies. Proponents, meanwhile, raised $3.2 million, primarily from attorneys.
