Kansas court upholds limits on damages in lawsuits - Article Photos 2/2

This undated photo shows Amy Miller of Eudora, Kan. The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld a state law imposing a $250,000 cap on damages that can be awarded for pain and suffering in personal injury lawsuits. The court ruled Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, against Miller, who challenged the 1988 law imposing the cap on non-economic damages. Miller sued her doctor for removing the wrong ovary from her during surgery in 2002. A jury awarded her nearly $760,000 in damages in 2006, but the award was reduced.
