The myth of tort reform -- that it leads to reduced medical costs -- is discussed by the Lexington Herald-Leader, "Tort Reform Doesn't Cut Health Costs." Texas adopted tort reform and limited the rights of the most severely injured and following has seen an increase in medical costs. 

The Herald-Leader also cites to a very interesting recent article in the New Yorker by Dr. Atul Gawande, "The Conundrum: What A Texas Town Can Teach Us About Health Care."
