MI Court: Damages for Caring for Kids Uncapped

A divided Michigan Supreme Court has allowed to stand a ruling that a dead mother's family can sue for $1.4 M for lost household services.  The defendants argued the damages were noneconomic and, thus, subject to a damages cap.  I haven't read the opinion, and I can't vouch for the valuation, but the principle seems accurate.  Replacing these services will require a monetary payment.  The Chicago Tribune has a brief story here.
