The medical association that represents Oklahoma physicians is calling for the ouster of all three members of the Oklahoma Supreme Court who are on this year's general election ballot for a retention vote.
OSMA President Dr. Todd Brockman said in a statement the decision to urge the ouster of the justices was based on rulings by the Supreme Court against attempts by the Legislature to change the state's civil justice system – or tort reform.
In June of 2013 the Supreme Court ruled the Comprehensive Lawsuit Reform Act of 2009, or H.B. 1603, was unconstitutional because the act addressed more than one subject. Governor Mary Fallin called a special session of the legislature to address tort reform that resulted in 23 separate bills approved by both houses and signed by Fallin.
