Le juge et le diagnostic prénatal depuis la loi du 4 mars 2002

Abstract : The controversy generated by the famous Perruche decision of the French Supreme Court (Cour de cassation) dated November 17, 2001, made a lasting impression on the medical and legal worlds and triggered an unprecedented public debate on the possible judicialization of medical practice. This controversy led the French legislator to define, by Article 1 of the Patients’ Rights Law of March 4, 2002, an exceptional liability regime for prenatal diagnosis. Based on an analysis of caselaw, this paper examines the application of the Patients’ Rights Law by French courts and the changes deriving from it concerning medical liability and compensation of the damages sustained by the victims. It also demonstrates how judges are willing, through their decisions, to accompany evolutions in medical professions and within families regarding disabilities in unborn children.
