Update on 2006 Senate Bill 210
This bill was referred to the House Judiciary Committee on March 13, 2006. Several amendments have been attached, including those favorable to "tort reform." These include setting maximum fees recoverable in negligence cases, allowing recoverable court costs to a party found not at fault, and a constitutional amendment, allowing the legislature to create statutory provisions, relating to medical malpractice. These amendments will likely kill this bill.
