Personal Injury Roundup No. 52 (10/02/09)

I know we've celebrated one year of having the Roundup already, but we've missed a few weeks.  This 52nd Roundup represents a full year of actual posts.

Reform, Legislation, Policy

New Lawsuits

  • "Hold your Wee for a Wii" trial begins (TortsProf)
  • Family of Americans killed in Air France crash sue (AP)

Appeals

  • TN:  According to John Day, the TN Supreme Court has ruled that "a plaintiff who lost a medical malpractice case in federal court was not estopped from pursing a case against a State-employed doctor even though the federal court jury assigned no fault to the doctor, a non-party in the federal court action."  (Day on Torts)

Damages

  • Impermissible jury compromise requires court to set aside $500,000 pain and suffering verdict for ankle injuries in case stemming from 1993 WTC bombing (Hochfelder)

Miscellaneous
