Bill to adopt discovery rule as part of statute of limitations fails in New York

The New York Daily News is reporting that a bill to adopt the discovery rule for med mal cases in New York failed to be approved by the legislature.  The bill would have tolled the current 2 1/2 year statute of limitations until the plaintiff discovered the alleged malpractice.  New York is one of only six states that does not follow the discovery rule in this context. 

Thanks to the TortsProf blog for the update.
