Florida: Damage Cap Statute Violates State Constitution

In a notable state constitutional law decision, the Florida Supreme Court on certified questions from the 11th Circuit, held that Florida's statutory cap on noneconomic damages in wrongful death cases violates the equal protection clause in the Florida Constitution.

The case is Estate of McCall vs. United States, No. SC11-1148 (Fla., March 13, 2014).
