Illinois Med-Mal Reforms Headed to IL Supreme Court

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that "[a] lawsuit testing the constitutionality of Illinois' medical malpractice reforms is expected to come before the state's Supreme Court this fall — and with it the very real possibility that the law will be nixed."   The suit involves a challenge to a 2005 law that limited non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases to $500,000 for doctors and $1 million for hospitals.
