Sink moves to protect girl's claim



CFO Alex Sink shares the aggravation over lawyers and lobbyists trying to get a bigger share of Minouche Noel's claims award.

“My heart goes out to Ms. Minouche Noel and her family, who have suffered for far too long after an incident of medical malpractice almost two decades ago," Sink said in a statement. “I thank President Pruitt and Speaker Rubio for their leadership on this issue. I too, share their concerns for Ms. Noel and her family. My legal staff is aggressively moving forward to protect the Noels.  Further, I would like to work with the Legislature to standardize our claims payment process so that in the future families will not suffer as the Noels are today.”
