For the third time in one week, a New York appellate court has issued a decision ruling on the reasonableness of a jury's pain and suffering verdict while withholding the nature of the injury. Eric Turkewitz over at New York Personal Injury Law Blog says I am "steamed" about this issue. Well, maybe I am.
