Congressman concerned about defective medical device

With the advances of medical technology, there are now many different options available to women in California and across the country in regards to birth control. These options allow women to decide when -- and if -- they will have children.

Amputee victim awarded millions in medical malpractice settlement

No matter the circumstances surrounding a patient's personal life, each and every individual in California who seeks necessary medical care should be provided with adequate and timely treatment.

He has since been awarded millions in a medical malpractice settlement.
