Proponents of Raising Calif.’s Medical Malpractice Cap Submit Signatures To Qualify Ballot Measure
On Monday, backers of a proposed ballot initiative that would alter state law to increase the limits on medical malpractice compensation to about $1.1 million submitted signatures to qualify the measure. About 830,000 signatures were submitted in favor of the initiative -- far more than the 504,000 signatures required to qualify the measure.
