Luttrell v. Island Pacific Supermarkets, Inc., A134089

In a personal injury action, the trial court properly applied Howell v. Hamilton Meats, specifically that: 1) Howell governs to reduce the recovery of past medical expenses to the amounts actually paid by Medicare and Medi-cal rather than the amount billed; and 2) the Howell cap should be imposed before any reduction for failure to mitigate damages.
