  2. Do I need Malpractice insurance?
    Why do they even know she has it? It's not on any public record that you have MI. Get it and don't tell anyone except your attorney, when/if you need to use it.

    Where I work we get 1 hour for lunch and to be honest, I would rather take 15-30 min and go home earlier. I asked if I could do that and was told no. :(
