Missouri Narrows Tort Reform Caps, Passes on Constitutionality Question

2010-08-18
The Missouri Supreme Court recently provided a significant, albeit limited, victory to injured people seeking damages in medical malpractice claims. In Klotz v. St. Anthony's Medical Center, the court concluded that the caps on noneconomic damages enacted by Missouri's 2005 tort reform law should only apply to injuries that occurred after the law took effect. Unfortunately, the court failed to address the larger issues of whether the damages caps themselves are constitutional. The 2005 Tort Reform Law and Damages Caps In 2005, then-Gov.

2010-08-18
Countless crimes are committed everyday in the United States. Some of them, by default, are committed by people with some form of mental illness. Some of these disorders are diagnosed, some are not.

The defendants were identified after federal officials raided a company in Florida that sold child pornography on the Internet. With information from the credit cards used to access and view ...
