Maryland top court upholds limit on jury awards for pain and suffering

From the Baltimore Sun:
Maryland's highest court upheld the state's limit on jury awards for pain and suffering in personal injury lawsuits Friday, allowing businesses, insurers and others who are sued to breathe a sigh of relief.
...
The 6-1 decision by the Court of Appeals was made in a case that slashed a jury award from $4 million to about $1 million to the Davidsonville parents of a 5-year-old boy who drowned in 2006 in a Crofton swimming pool.
