A Victory For The Citizens Of Illinois: The Illinois Supreme Court Rules That Medical Malpractice Damage Caps Are Unconstitutional

The Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state's medical malpractice law today, saying it violates separation of powers by allowing lawmakers to interfere with a judge's ability to reduce verdicts.
