North Carolina is currently debating medical malpractice reform in the form of a cap on noneconomic damages, a limitation on the liability of provider's of emergency services (increasing the intent standard to gross negligence or higher), periodic payments for large awards, and other measures. Such a bill pits the plaintiffs' bar squarely against health care providers and the defense bar. It will be interesting to see if any reform is actually passed.
