Oregon Health & Science University Settles Six Malpractice Cases

The Oregonian reports that Oregon Health & Science University has agreed to settle six malpractice cases for a combined $38.5 million.   In December, the Oregon Supreme Court invalidated a damages cap shielding OHSU and other Oregon state agencies from awards over $200,000.   As noted earlier, OHSU and the state trial lawyers association have agreed on a new damages cap, which will be considered by the state legislature next year.
