Missouri Supreme Court inconsistent with lawsuit cap
"The Springfield News-Leader reports that the Missouri Supreme Court recently threw out a $350,000 cap on losses such as pain and suffering in malpractice cases. But a wrongful death case decided just months early by the high court upheld the cap in wrongful death cases."
"Attorneys said the pair of rulings apparently means it may literally be cheaper to kill a patient in Missouri than to maim someone."
