Tort Awards

Two interesting recent posts/newsletters related to damage awards in tort litigation:

  • The Maryland Injury Lawyer Blog discusses a 2003 study that found interesting -- and not necessarily intuitive -- relations among a plaintiff's race, a plaintiff's income, and damage awards.
  • Prof. David Frankel (Iowa State econ) of -- a commercial entity assisting in evaluating the value of med mal cases based on a large database of settlements and verdicts -- sent along the first issue of the site's newsletter, which gives some big picture information about what affects award amounts.  You can download it here: Download newsletterV1N1.pdf.  While it's in part an ad for their services, it's interesting reading nonetheless.
