A former Dallas Cowboys football player is a plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Texas’ medical malpractice “pain and suffering” damages cap, according to the Associated Press.

The football player, Ron Springs, slipped into a coma last fall after surgery to remove a cyst. Spring’s wife brought the suit in January and called the surgery routine.

According to the AP, Springs joins with 10 other plaintiffs seeking class action status to overturn Texas’ Medical Malpractice and Tort Reform Act, which limits a plaintiff’s pain and suffering awards at $250,000 per provider for a total of $750,000.
