Liability Changes Maybe Alive Again in Oklahoma, Only Not Probably for Very Long

Last year, Oklahoma's governor vetoed legislation that would have changed various things in that state's tort system -- capping noneconomic damages at $300K, requiring clear and convincing evidence of intentional conduct or gross negligence for punitive damages, etc.  There's more about the veto in this post.

Well, it's back.  And presumably it has the same fate; it seems at least plausible that this being an election year has just a little to do with its reintroduction.
