The Mississippi Supreme Court will soon issue its ruling in the case of Double Quick, Inc. v. Ronnie Lee Lymas. The court is expected to rule on the constitutionality of Mississippi’s non-economic damage cap. The cap limits recovery of non-economic damages (awards for pain, suffering, loss of companionship, and other similar losses) to $1,000,000 in civil suits.
