WI: Judge Holds Med Mal Cap Does Not Apply to $25.3M Verdict

A Milwaukee County circuit judge held the state's $750,000 cap on pain and suffering did not apply to a $25.3M verdict, including $15M of pain and suffering to her and $1.5M to her husband, for a woman who lost all 4 limbs due to septic infection.  The court did not find the cap unconstitutional, but held there was no rational basis to apply it to this case.  An appeal is expected.  A Journal Times editorial in support of the judge's ruling is here.
