SACRAMENTO (KCBS) – A high-profile, expensive fight over medical malpractice will be on the November ballot in California, after more than 840,000 voter signatures were turned in to qualify it.
The initiative was triggered by the tragic death of a Danville father’s two young children.
In 2003, 10-year-old Troy Pack and his little sister Alana were struck and killed by a drunk driver, who was found to be high on Vicodin. The driver had acquired hundreds of pills from doctors. So the children’s father, Bob, tried to sue the doctors.
