Georgia House braces for medical malpractice tort reform rulings

side note: This seems to be how tort reform is unfolding in almost every state with tort reforms laws that cap non-economic damage on the books—court overturns legislation; legislators re-legislate.

ATLANTA — A top GOP legislator vowed that lawmakers would quickly bolster Georgia’s new tort reform laws if any pieces are struck down by the state’s top court.

House Majority Leader Jerry Keen said Tuesday that lawmakers would “react and react quickly” if the Georgia Supreme Court struck down any part of the 2005 overhaul.
