On Wednesday, the Florida Supreme Court questioned lawyers in a continuing dispute over a 2003 medical-malpractice law limiting the amount of money a woman can receive because of complications after leg surgery. The case centers on if damage caps set by lawmakers can apply to the case of Kimberly Ann Miles, a Miami-Dade County woman who was injured prior to the passage of the 2003 law, but filed a lawsuit in January 2006. Miles and her husband received a jury award of $1.5 million in non-economic damages, which was subsequently reduced to $500,000 due to the law.
