If the mother of a new-born child whom was born in the United States is herself not a US citizen nor a resident of the United States, does that limit the judgement amount in malpractice suit against a hospital in the United STates for injuring her child?

Generally, citizenship status does not affect someones ability to file civil suit.
Her best bet would be to consult with an attorney.
If she hasn't already retained a lawyer, feel free to have her call me for a free phone consultation.
