The ISMA has learned that oral arguments will be heard May 3 in the case of Plank vs. Community Hospital. This case challenges the constitutionality of our state’s malpractice damages cap, a cornerstone of our 37-year old medical malpractice law. Removal of the cap could have serious consequences for all physicians in Indiana.
The ISMA has been actively defending our current law, fearing the return to an environment of unlimited liability. ISMA Reports will continue to bring you updates on this important case.
