Corenbaum v. Lampkin (2013) 215 Cal.App.4th 1308 (amicus)

Adopting the position advanced by GMSR in an amicus brief solicited by the court and addressing two issues left open in Howell v. Hamilton Meats & Provisions, Inc. (2011) 52 Cal.4th 541, Corenbaum held that evidence of the full amounts billed for plaintiffs’ medical care was not relevant to the amount of damages for their future medical care or noneconomic damages. Corenbaum further holds that the full amount billed (but not paid) for past medical services can provide no reasonable basis for an expert opinion of the value of future medical services.
