Darrell Steinberg’s medical damages bill surfaces late in session

“With just a few days remaining in the 2012 legislative session, Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg has filled in a shell bill aimed at overturning, or at least altering, a hotly contested 2011 state Supreme Court ruling on medical damages in personal injury cases.

The revised bill – backed by attorneys who specialize in such cases and opposed by business, medical and insurance groups – cleared the Assembly Judiciary Committee Tuesday on a party-line, 6-3 vote. It had earlier passed the Senate with a brief framework that Steinberg had promised would be fleshed out later.

Enacting the legislation, Senate Bill 1528, has been the highest priority of Consumer Attorneys of California this year.” (Sacramento Bee, August 28, 2012). Read it here.
