2018 \”Show Me the Constitution\” Competition

Scott Vorhees Helps High School Students Prepare for Dec. 2018 “Show
Me the Constitution” Contest

At Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci, we are doing our part to help form
the generation of great legal minds.
Attorney Scott J. Vorhees is currently helping students on the Joplin High School Constitution Team
prepare for the annual Show Me the Constitution competition, set to take
place in Columbia on December 3, 2018. “Gaining a respect and understanding
of our Constitution is important for all citizens, especially students,”
says Vorhees. The JHS Constitution Team won the 2017 We the People state
competition and, with Vorhees’ help, they hope to be as prepared
as possible for the mock congressional committee hearings in this year’s contest.

We are proud to play a role in the intellectual formation of Joplin students
by imparting constitutional understanding and interpretive skills to the
teens and young adults involved in the Show Me the Constitution competition.
We are also pleased to participate in fulfilling the mission of The Missouri
Bar Foundation by helping future attorneys develop a lifelong appreciation
for the United States Constitution and all that it represents.

Medical malpractice caps: ineffective wherever they\’re tried

Every state in the nation wrestles with decisions over how best to serve its citizens. In Missouri, we have repeatedly wrestled with different approaches on the how to handle cases in which patients are harmed by doctor or hospital negligence. Florida is currently faced with similar decisions on medical malpractice after its state Supreme Court held that caps on noneconomic damages were unconstitutional, much as the Missouri high court ruled

Medical Malpractice

Are Some Doctors More Prone to Medical Malpractice Than Others?

Members of Stanford University School of Medicine and Stanford Law School have recently released the results of a study that used 10-years’ worth of statistics to complete. What were they trying to find that required a decade of numbers, facts, and evidence? The purpose was to analyze paid medical malpractice claims to determine if certain behaviors, or even just certain medical practitioners, were more prone to harming patients than others.
