Mini-Tort Reform

As a consequence of the recent healthcare controversy, where we argue most strongly for Tort Reform, each state can do its part as well right now.

In my view, the first part to consider can actually be done right here in the General Assembly right now. And that is to make a consistent “Loser Pays” condition for all suits brought before the Court.

This should reduce frivolous lawsuits, while at the same time not impacting the legal profession so significantly that they wouldn’t want to pass stronger legislation against their practice. At least I think so.

This should go a long way towards keeping our services, and products, pricing from rising so fast to keep us from a never ending inflationary spiral of costs.

Anyone want to rebut that?
