Lawsuit proof in Ohio?

side note: This is a very interesting ruling out of Ohio

An Ohio Supreme Court ruling has limited a patient’s opportunity to sue for medical malpractice based on where the treatment occurred and who was present for the treatment. In Theobald v. University of Cincinnati, the Court ruled that when a physician is negligent in treating a patient, the physician will be immune from liability as long as a medical student or resident was present during the treatment. Basically, under these circumstances, the physician is legally considered to be a state employee acting within the scope of his or her employment, and therefore is immune from civil liability.
