Governor Signs Tort Reform Bill 
On May 7, Governor Jay Nixon signed into law SB 239, MSMA’s tort reform bill. His signature brought to an end three years of a hard-fought offensive to restore limits on non-economic damage awards in lawsuits alleging medical negligence. SB 239 creates two caps on non-economic damages; a primary limit of $400,000, and a higher cap of $700,000 for “catastrophic” injuries (which are tightly defined). Both are subject to an annual index of 1.7% for inflation.

MSMA expresses deep gratitude to the sponsors of this effort, Senator Dan Brown and Representative Eric Burlison, and to our four physician legislators (Senators Rob Schaaf and Bob Onder, and Representatives Keith Frederick and Jim Neely). MSMA also recognizes extraordinary grassroots help from you and your physician colleagues across the state. Thank you!
