Is Mississippi's damages cap working?



Mississippi capped non-economic damages at $1M in 2002 and 2004, but cases filed before then are still working their way to juries with nine-digit awards; meanwhile, the Mississippi Supreme Court is considering a constitutional challenge to the caps referred to it by the Fifth Circuit. Other jury verdicts get publicity, but will be reduced after motions. [Clarion-Ledger via Bashman]
