California bill on collateral-source rule



The Civil Justice Association of California is urging Gov. Schwarzenegger to veto SB 93 and AB 1456, passed by the Legislature, which (per the state's insurers) "would prevent a jury from receiving evidence that a Medi-Cal recipient who is a plaintiff in a lawsuit had his or her medical bills paid by Medi-Cal. This ban on evidence would increase damage awards, which in turn would increase liability insurance rates for drivers, homeowners and businesses." Plus: more detail on the sausage-making methods of the legislature in Sacramento here.
