Double Quick, Inc. v. Lymas

Date: August 11, 2011

Mississippi Supreme Court

The Mississippi Supreme Court is considering a constitutional challenge to the state's $1 million general cap on noneconomic damages.  The judge in the case lowered the non-economic damages to $1 million, which is the cap passed by the Mississippi Legislature in 2004. 
Lymas' attorneys are challenging the constitutionality of the limit.

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed in support of property owner on 12/14/09.  Argument set for 6/8/10.  Court reversed and rendered 9-0 on Lymas’ failure to prove proximate cause and dismissed the statutory cap issue as moot.
