California Jury Awards $8.5 Million But Medical Malpractice Limits Reduce Award

The San Jose Mercury News reports from Modesto, CA that:
"A jury has awarded $8.5 million to the widow of a man who died on the day a surgeon was going to discharge him from the hospital.

Because of medical malpractice limits, 38-year-old Holly Stinnett likely will receive only $1.6 million of that amount."
