Swann Calls For Eliminating Joint & Several Liability, Excessive Touchdown Celebrations

Okay, he actually only called for ending joint and several liability, saying he would have signed the Fair Share Act vetoed by Governor Rendell.

''Insurance costs are continuing to go up,'' Swann said after taking a brief tour of Moravian Hall Square, a 300-resident nursing home and assisted living community in Nazareth. ''We've got to have real tort reform.''

Although he believes people should have the right to sue, the onetime wide receiver also believes frivolous filings are clogging the judicial system.
