Personal Injury Roundup No. 99 (4/1/2011)

New Cases

  • TX:  Family of teen who committed suicide sues the Texas school district where he attended school; some of the incidents were videotaped and posted to Youtube.  (ABA Journal)
  • VA:  One defamation case begets another as judge alleges defamation against newspaper based on newspaper's coverage of a defamation case over which he presided.  (VLW Blog)

Appeals

Reform, Legislation, Policy

  • VA:  Governor McDonnell vetoed a compromise plan reached by hospitals, physicians, and trial lawyers providing for annual increases in Virginia's med mal cap from $2M to $3M.  Note this is a total cap, not a cap on non-economic damages.  Apparently an override is possible.  (VLW Blog)
  • MI:  Potential changes to MI no-fault auto law.  (Michigan Auto Lawyers Blog)

This is a great list. Thanks! Hopefully no changes would be made to the MCCA coverage. There must be better ways to manage costs other than the proposed legislation.
