Bill Subjects

Civil Actions: Damages.

Abstract

Existing law authorizes a person who suffers a loss or harm to that person or that person's property, from an unlawful act or omission of another to recover monetary compensation, known as damages, from the person in fault. Existing law specifies the measure of damages as the amount which will compensate for the loss or harm, whether anticipated or not, and requires the damages awarded to be reasonable. This bill would prohibit the estimation, measure, or calculation of past, present, or future damages for lost earnings or impaired earning capacity resulting from personal injury or wrongful death from being reduced based on race, ethnicity, or gender.
