The Ohio Supreme Court held that a statutory cap on noneconomic damages is unconstitutional as applied to a limited class of individuals who were victimized at a very young age, suffered catastrophic psychological injuries, and bring civil actions to recover damages from the persons who have been found guilty of those intentional criminal acts, but otherwise reaffirms its holding that the damages cap is constitutional. The U.S. Chamber filed a coalition amicus brief supporting the statute’s facial constitutionality.
