A newly released study by the Center for Justice and Democracy has proven that where doctors choose to practice and live has no connection to a state's tort law. This includes whether or not a state caps damages and at what level. The suggestion that doctors might leave California or abandon certain specialties if the $250,000 cap on non-economic damages were repealed, let alone simply increased for inflation, has no support in the academic literature, government studies, or actual experiences of other states.
