YOU MUST FILE A
TORT CLAIM AT A
SPECIFIC UC CAMPUS
HEALTH CENTER
RATHER THAN THE
STATE OF CALIFORNIA

The University of
California works hard to
conceal the tort claim
process.  You can't sue if
you don't file a tort claim
within 6 months.

At first I was duped by the
following document published
by the Regents of the
University of California.  





























In fact, "section 1 above",
does not inform the
reader that he must serve
a tort claim on the UC
campus involved.  
Instead, it provides an
address in San Francisco.  
It's the wrong address for
filing a tort claim.  Clearly,
the Regents want patients
to come to them for health
care, but if they harm the
patient, they don't want
him to be able to file a
claim.
Warning--the following
statement from the
Office of The General
Counsel of the UC
Regents (“OGC”) is
deceptive; read more
below.

"THE REGENTS IS NOT
SUBJECT TO CLAIM-
FILING PROVISIONS OF
THE TORT CLAIMS ACT
"California Government
Code section 905.6
exempts The Regents of
the University of
California from claim-
filing provisions of the
Tort Claims Act.  A
claimant who wishes to
file suit against The
Regents may serve OGC
as specified in section 1
above."
