Sample text

AMA (1987) five Illinois chiropractors filed a federal antitrust suit against the AMA and nine other medical organizations. Similar suits were filed in New York and Pennsylvania. The AMA quickly backed off from its public criticism of chiropractors, but the legal battle continued. The suit was not settled for 11 more years. A United States district judge found in 1987 (Wilk v.
