Supreme Court, Epic, and Arbitration

Over the last few weeks, I've seen a bunch of articles popping up about all the lawsuits that Epic is involved in. Read the links, they say it better than I could, but in summary:

Epic got sued a while back over lack of overtime pay. Epic settled, and then changed its employment agreement to require arbitration rather than lawsuits. Epic got sued again, lost, appealed, and the court of appeals said that forcing employees into arbitration was Not Good. Due to variances in different courts (7th Circuit vs 5th Circuit), people have asked the Supreme Court to give its opinion.

Epic: With the Patient at the Heart*

In other news, I thought this was pretty cool: Flint Doctor uses Epic to Expose Lead Crisis. It's almost a year old, but this is the good stuff that Epic should be doing (and getting credit for) all the time.
