Med mal reform in Hawaii

TortsProf Blog reports today that "As Pacific Business News reports, House Bill 1784 is moving forward in the Hawaiian legislature: HB 1784 limits noneconomic damages to $250,000 in medical malpractice claims against certain specialists who practice in areas such as emergency medicine, neurological surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedic surgery and general surgery. It also caps at $3 million the award for gross negligence."
