MICRA Reform Initiative Fails by a Wide Margin   


After a long and expensive campaign Prop 46 failed passage by a significant margin 33% yes to 67% no. The Consumer Attorneys have vowed to continue to press for MICRA reform in the Legislature. The coalition that CSP belongs to, Californians Allied For Patient Protection, will continue to oppose attempts to increase the cap on non-economic damages.
