Justices Weigh Medical Mal Cap
The ongoing debate over Florida’s controversial medical malpractice law is being pondered again by the state’s Supreme Court.
Justices heard arguments this week about whether a Miami-Dade County woman injured before the 2003 law should have the damage caps applied in her case, the News Service of Florida reports.
Kimberly Ann Miles did not file a lawsuit against her physician until January 2006.
Two lower courts have disagreed about the issue. It could be several months before the Supreme Court issues a decision, the News Service reports.
