In December 2014, California’s high court ruled in the Rashidi v Moser case that the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act’s $250,000 cap on noneconomic damages in medical malpractice suits doesn’t require that jury awards of noneconomic damages be reduced by a pretrial settlement with a jointly liable party, overturning a lower court decision. This experienced panel will discuss the impact of this ruling on medical malpractice mediations and settlements.
