Following Delaney v. Baker (1999) 20 Cal.4th 23, this decision holds that MICRA’s one-year limitations on medical malpractice claims and $250,000 limit on non-economic damages did not apply to this elderly woman’s who was sexually assaulted by the defendant elder care facility’s male attendant, based on a jury’s finding that the defendant was not only guilty not only of general negligence but also reckless neglect of the plaintiff.  The opinion finds there was substantial evidence to support the finding of reckless neglect as well as the jury’s allocation of fault and assessment of punitive damages.
