State Supreme Court Strikes Down Medical Malpractice Cap



Georgia’s $350,000 cap for pain and suffering damage in medical malpractice claims, similar to a template proposed for the nation, was struck down Monday by the Georgia Supreme Court, which unanimously ruled the cap is unconstitutional. With a 7-0 vote, the court said the "non-economic damages" cap violates a citizen’s constitutional right to a trial by jury.
