A jury awarded economic damages totaling $15,964.00, but only $5,000.00 in noneconomic damages for pain and suffering.  The court holds that the award failed to shock the conscience.  The court states that while the award could be described as “parsimonious”, it did not fall outside of the limits of fair and reasonable compensation or shock the sense of justice.  Baldwick v. McRedmond (08/23/16)
