Washington governor opposes medical malpractice caps

Washington Gov. Gary Locke opposes $250,000 caps on noneconomic damage awards on Washington medical malpractice awards, finding them an attempt at arbitrarily deciding a lifetime pain and suffering award. States have been in debates over the medical malpractice "crisis", and Locke is attempting to block frivolous lawsuits, shorten the period in time medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed, and reducing the cost of medical malpractice lawsuits.
