Texas Jury Finds Nursing Home Negligent

Yesterday in San Antonio, a civil jury found a nursing home negligent in the care of a man who developed severe, infected bed sores.  The nearly $600,000 verdict will be reduced by a damage cap to $250,000.  In a newspaper interview, the plaintiff's attorney argued that such trials had become rare because of the cap.  My SA.com has the story.
