One of the biggest events in tort law this fall is Prop 46, the California ballot initiative over whether to raise the MICRA cap on non-economic damages in med mal cases (set in 1975 at $250,000 and not raised since). I have contacted both pro- and anti-Prop 46 spokespeople and asked them to write a post supporting their respective positions. Eric Andrist is a leading voice in the pro-Prop 46 movement. His post will appear tomorrow. I have reached out several times to the California Medical Association, and I am still hoping to receive a post from them.
