This is the third time Illinois’ highest court has ruled that artificial caps on medical malpractice damages are unconstitutional.
It makes sense, right? Who would you rather have decide your case – some politicians in Washington or Springfield who don’t know any of the facts, or 12 people from your community who have had the chance to hear and discuss all of the evidence? It should be a no brainer.
More on this opinion when I get the chance to read it.
