LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis Rams official and a county police chief differed Monday about whether the team had apologized for the actions of five players who raised their hands during pregame festivities in a show of solidarity with Ferguson protesters.

Ohio bill would shield doctors who say 'My fault'

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 12/02/2014 - 14:05

This undated photo provided by the Ohio House of Representatives shows Rep. Peter Stautberg.

While Ohio law already includes protection for apologies by doctors, a bill sponsored by Stautberg, a Cincinnati Republican, would shield statements that take responsibility or acknowledge mistakes. (AP Photo/HO, Ohio House of Representatives)COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Doctors talking privately to patients or families after a medical mishap could acknowledge responsibility or even admit a mistake without that conversation being used against them later in court, according to a proposal in the Ohio General Assembly pushed by physicians.
