Unlike the U.S. Supreme Court, the New Jersey Supreme Court has no set schedule dictating when opinions are likely to be released. (For example, NJCJI is still waiting for an opinion in the DeMarco v. Stoddard case, which was heard in April.) This week a couple of interesting civil decisions were released.

Doctors in New Jersey do not have to tell patients whether they have malpractice insurance for a surgery they are recommending, the state Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday.
The malpractice related decision, James R. Jarrell v. Richard A. Kaul, M.D., inspired The Record’s editorial board to call for wholesale reform of our state’s malpractice law.
