Case No. 2008-1463 Donald Krieger et al. v. Cleveland Indians Baseball Co. et al. (Mp3)
Does Law Capping a City's Liability for Noneconomic Damages at $250,000 Violate Plaintiffs' Rights?
Donald Krieger et al. v. Cleveland Indians Baseball Co. et al., Case no. 2008-1463
8th District Court of Appeals (Cuyahoga County)
ISSUE: Does a tort reform statute capping the amount of noneconomic damages that a civil plaintiff may recover from a political subdivision at $250,000 other than in wrongful death cases violate plaintiffs' constitutional rights to equal protection of the law and to have all factual issues in their cases, including the amount of damages, decided by a jury?
