Hey, Jason, couldn’t find a more appropriate forum for this — just thought you’d be interested, and wondered if any other medical residents or residents-to-be had any thoughts on it or were part of the class action:

Resident Physicians Ask Court for Relief
The National Law Journal
May 21, 2002

A class action antitrust suit is the latest skirmish in the long fight waged by doctors to improve their working conditions. The suit, filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., targets the National Resident Matching Program and organizations that participate in the program, charging they illegally conspired to eliminate competition in the recruitment, hiring and compensation of resident physicians.



Only three residents have joined the suit, down from four originally. It doesn’t appear that many of us think that the suit is a good way of changing the system.
