“Several states have experimented with various caps on pain and suffering type damages, and it remains to be seen what Florida’s going to do with that. They’ve had a cap system in place for several years, and I think that that has reduced the amount of litigation. There’s discussion about caps being imposed on the federal level as some part of grand bargain. That’s really tough to say at this point whether that’s actually going to happen, and, if so, what would the cap levels be. It’s a little too early to tell what’s going to happen with that.”
