These reporters began their intensive coverage of medical malpractice lawsuits in 2003, with the series "Prescription for Peril." Most of the reporting was done through interviews and digging up documents hidden away in old county court houses. In 2004, the reporters decided to take their investigation one step further by filing open records requests for all public records regarding medical malpractice payments. These stories chronicle the fight over the records and then analyze the data to show that medical malpractice payments have, in fact, been dropping.
