Tort Reform scoreboard: Republicans-1, Democrats-0
Tort Reform Bill Heading Towards Passage.
The Washington Post (2/8, A4, Harris) reports that as the Senate “began debate yesterday on a measure that would revise rules on class-action lawsuits -- a longtime goal of President Bush and his business supporters -- as consumer groups urgently tried to garner support for amendments they said would make an objectionable bill somewhat more palatable.” The Post continues, “Acknowledging that the bill is on a fast track for passage, opponents said yesterday that they are lobbying for amendments to help ensure that classaction cases are not dismissed by federal judges.”
