Pennsylvania Supreme Court To Review the Continuing Validity of Statutory Cap On Damages Allowed Against State Agencies

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to review a challenge by a Plaintiff to the $250,0000 statutory cap on damages allowed against state agencies.

The Court will hear the appeal in the case of Freilich v. SEPTA.  Here is a LINK to previous Tort Talk posts covering the Freilich case.

The lower courts in this case have rejected the challenge to the statutory caps but have expressed concerns about the fairness of the cap.
