Recently, a 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card, in near-mint condition, sold for a record $12.6 million at auction. Imagine if the new owner brought the card home and showed it to a friend, carefully instructing the friend not to take it out of its protective cover. But while the new owner’s attention is diverted, the friend removes the card from its sleeve, lays it on the table, and proceeds to spill his nearby beer. Luckily, the friend is able to swipe the card off the table before it is completely ruined, but a few small drops of beer permanently stain the once-near-mint condition card.

On August 25, 2022, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued on an important decision in Mirian Rivera v. The Valley Hospital, Inc., (A-25/26/27-21)(085992)(085993)(085994), reaffirming the exceedingly high bar for punitive damages claims in medical malpractice cases in New Jersey. This is an important decision for healthcare providers as it provides them with broad protection from punitive damages claims (which are not covered by malpractice insurance) that are really negligence or gross negligence claims in disguise.
