ABA GP|Solo Meeting Cancelled Due to Swine Flu in Mexico

In a disappointment to many people, members of the American Bar Association GP|Solo section received this e-mail today:

April 28, 2009 To GP Members:

Subject: ABA GP|Solo Spring Meeting is cancelled

Dear ABA GP|Solo Member:

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at, the human swine flu outbreak continues to grow in the United States and internationally. In response to the intensifying outbreak, the ABA General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division leadership has decided to cancel the spring meeting scheduled in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico from May 7-9, 2009.

The Division leadership discussed the varying information available about the outbreak, but ultimately decided that cancellation of this meeting is in the best interest of our members. Contingency plans for the committee meetings, the awards luncheon, and the council meeting are being discussed and more information will be posted to the website.

If you have already confirmed your hotel or meeting registration, an e-mail with detailed cancellation information has already been sent to you. If you did not receive this notice, please go to our website at or contact Laura Ramirez, GP|Solo Meetings Manager at or (312) 988-5659(312) 988-5659.

We deeply regret that this decision had to be made. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about it.

Chair, ABA General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
