In 2016, an Ohio Supreme Court ruling threw out a $3.6M jury award to a woman who had been raped by her pastor at the age of 15. The court reduced the award to around $385,000 based on a noneconomic damages cap. Proposed legislation would exempt rape victims from the cap. A similar effort failed right after the 2016 ruling. Surely exempting rape from the cap is the decent thing to do. The Washington Times has details.
