Supreme Court Decision on Non-Economic Damages a Blow to Small Business

Date: June 14, 2019

NFIB State Director Dan Murray says today’s decision by the Kansas Supreme Court that the state’s statutory cap on non-economic damages is unconstitutional is a blow to the state’s small businesses:

“We are very disappointed in today’s decision by the state Supreme Court,” Murray said. “Our members supported the legislature’s efforts to the amount of non-economic damages a plaintiff can be awarded in a civil action.

“Small businesses are especially vulnerable to bogus and abusive litigation,” Murray said. “One overzealous jury award could be enough to put a small business out of business.

“We look forward to working with legislative leaders on commonsense legislation that serves the interests of Kansans and Kansas’ small businesses.”
