Still waiting after all these years

The Illinois Supreme Court announced a few decisions today, but what made the news about the announcement was not so much the cases that were decided but one that was not. According to the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, there was some indication that the Court would announce its eagerly awaited decision in Abigaile Lebron v. Gottlieb Memorial Hospital which will decide whether the cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases is constitutional. The case was argued before the state's high court in November 2008. We'll have to wait just a bit more for an answer to that very important question. Note that if decided before the end of the year, the case is guaranteed a spot in what will be my "top ten" list (see my previous post....)
