- (Vasquez) Case allowing more than $500,000 in noneconomic damages for claims subject to workers’ compensation statute.
- (Busch) Case holding that Oregon’s $500,000 noneconomic damages cap is unconstitutional as applied to claims other than those for wrongful death.
- (Martinez) Case providing that, in the context of reasonableness of medical expenses, the expenses themselves must be shown to be reasonable in addition to the treatment itself.
- (Oregon Mutual) Case explaining the definition/test for when a policy is an “excess policy”.
