Today, CCL filed a brief in response to the amicus curiae brief filed by the Civil Justice Association of California in Hughes v. Pham, a challenge to California’s $250,000 cap on noneconomic damages now pending in the California Court of Appeal for the Fourth District, Division Two. Although briefing on the constitutional issues was completed in July, CJAC filed its brief in September. CCL’s Valerie M. Nannery authored the brief in response. The case is now fully briefed and awaits a date for oral argument.
