GOVERNOR PERRY'S TORT REFORM PACKAGE FILED

Among the slew of bills filed on Friday’s deadline was a pair that would implement Gov. Rick Perry’s new liability reform plan. HB 274 by Rep. Brandon Creighton (R-Conroe) and SB 13 by Sen. Joan Huffman (R-Houston) would establish a “loser pays” system for liability suits, a system for early dismissal of nonmeritorious cases, and a policy that no law can be construed to create a cause of action unless the law says it in “clear and unambiguous language.”
