Texas Jury Awards Worker $70M

That's right, worker awarded $70M in Texas case. That's M as in million. Read the account of this collosal verdict in the Journal-Record. It includes $20M for claimant's attorney fees. That's M as in million.

This monster verdict would not have been possible without the Texas workers' compensation reform that allowed employers to opt-out. Surely this will lead to alot of finger pointing and calls for more reform or a return to the old system. And the beat goes on. . . .
