Nevada governor signs liability bill

  1. Nevada Gov. Kenny Guinn has signed into law a new bill designed to stem the exodus of doctors from the state. The bill has a cap of $350,000 on damages for pain and suffering stemming from medical malpractice. Exceptions are made for cases involving gross negligence or if "clear and convincing" evidence exists that $350,000 is inadequate.
