On Tuesday, the Oregon Senate, in a close vote, defeated a bill that would have eliminated the state's $500,000 cap on non-economic damages in personal injury cases. An alternative proposal would have raised the cap, established in 1987, to $1.5M, with increases over time. That bill was also voted down, with the support of lawmakers who want to completely eliminate the cap. OregonLive.com has the story.
