Judge Diane Joan Larsen of Illinois ruled that the 2005 Illinois medical malpractice reform bill is unconstituational. This ruling did not come as a shock, but will have an impact on malpractice law none-the-less. After taking a closer look at the 1997 Supreme Court decision in Best vs. Taylor Machine Works, Larsen could not supercede the Illinois Supreme Court. This is not to say that the decision has not caused any change.
Texas has seen many civil reforms, including limits on non-economic damages. This type of reform has led to increased job growth and economic benefits for the state.
