Welcome back for another week of What’s Next, where we report on the intersection of law and technology. Following a series of nightmarish reproductive malpractice suits in California, Dov Fox, director of the University of San Diego’s Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics, takes us through how challenging it can be for patients to get justice. Plus, we prophesize the future of blockchain-based offerings after the first U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission-approved token sale under Regulation A+.
