According to an October 16, 2018 Pennsylvania Law Weekly article by Max Mitchell entitled "Pa. Supreme Court Rejects New Bid to Lift Statutory Damages Cap, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently rejected efforts by the plaintiffs to overturn the $250,000 statutory damages cap that protects governmental state agencies.
