There is more data that med mal payouts continue to decline, this time from South Dakota. Payouts in South Dakota for 2016 amounted to $1.8M statewide (for 12 cases), less than half the amount of payouts from 2015. With the small number of cases, such a one-year decline might not mean a lot. Payouts, however, continue a declining trend dating to 1992. The Sioux Falls Argus Leader has details.
