How much is your life worth? In November, Arkansans will have the opportunity to cast a vote that will determine whether an arbitrary price tag is placed on the value of their lives.
Issue 1, which will appear on statewide ballots in Arkansas on November 6th, is an amendment which proposes to cap Arkansans’ loss of life damages at $500,000, regardless of the wrongdoer’s conduct. If Issue 1 passes, citizen juries would not be allowed to enter a verdict of more than $500,000 for the loss of life damages of a child, a stay at home mother, or an elderly nursing home resident.
All life is precious. All lives are valuable. All lives are worth more than $500,000. Protect the value of your life and the right for local juries to make their own decisions. Vote No on Issue 1.
